Rain main concern instate Continued from page 1 higher," said Dave Ondrejik, a warning-coordination meteorol- ' ogist with the weather service in State College. Projections on Tuesday were for the storm to be " below hurricane strength when it reaches Pennsylvania on Friday morning. The state government's storm preparations include gathering a list of darns, contacting utilities, assembling lists of available people and equipment, and holding regular conference calls with county emergency management officials, said PEMA spokesman Tom Rathbun. Depending on the track of the storm, PEMA may activate its emergency operations center • sometime Thursday. The Federal Emergency Management Agency has agreed to send a liaison to Harrisburg, Rathbun said. Any flooding on the Susquehanna River may be helped by a system of levies and 13 flood- control dams maintained by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. During the river's most recent major flood, in January 1996, the flood projects held back 167 billion gallons of water and prevented an estimated $1.3 billion in additional damages, Obleski said. Although it is too late to make pre-emptive releases from its reservoirs, such as Raystown Lake, Army Corps of Engineers hydraulic engineer Stan Brua said the system is designed to withstand a 6-inch rainfall before the corps would start releasing some water. "If we release it, it might be getting downstream at the time downstream areas, are having heavy flows," Brua said. Glatfelter, a York County paper- maker, has begun lowering the water level of its reservoir, Lake Marburg, said mill manager Phil Keener.

About, ISQirnjles; .up,ttie>£.oast, people .were busy boarding, up windows on Virginia's Chincoteague Island.'.., ,..;,.-••>.•, ' "I love storms, and people are just freaking out," said Carol Patton, manager of Don's Seafood Restaurant at Chincoteague. "They're panicking, saying we're going to get it really bad. I've never seen the town boarded up like it is today." Others were less concerned. With Isabel weakened, Joe Hardison figured he would stay aboard his 35-foot houseboat on Bogue Sound at Morehead City, west of Cape Lookout, and ride it out as he did earlier storms over the years. "If (the boat) breaks loose, it's going to run aground somewhere. If it does, I'll step off," said the 59-year-old air conditioning man, who had stocked his vessel with 120 pounds of ice, 50 gallons of water and a half gallon of rum. Virginia Gov. Mark R. Warner today authorized local mandatory evacuations of vulnerable low- lying areas. Virginia Beach and Poquoson officials did so immediately, affecting about 26,000 people in Virginia Beach and 2,000 in Poquoson. Governors of North Carolina and Maryland also had declared states of emergency. • "Flooding could become a major problem for us, especially jn low-lying areas," said Ed Mc- riDonough^^sppkesraan for ithe ;; Maryland Emergency Management Agency. "We had an unusu- ,. ally-heavy rainfall ;this year and the ground is saturated. There's just nowhere to put the water." Colleges and universities in eastern Virginia, including the College of William & Mary, said they would close today for the rest of the week, and ordered students to leave. Mayfield noted that Floyd was only a Category 2 storm but it caused up to $4.6 billion in damage and 56 deaths in the United States. And even though Isabel was moving at a fairly good pace, which "tends to lessen the rain," Read said, there could still be 5 to 7 inches of rain in many places. Mayfield said that heavy rain could extend all the way to New England. This morning, Isabel was about 420 miles south-southeast of North Carolina's Cape Hatteras, moving north-northwest at around 9 mph. A hurricane warning was in effect from Cape Fear in southern North Carolina northward to the Virginia-Maryland state line, including most of Chesapeake Bay. Tropical storm watches extended northward to Sandy Hook, N.J., and southward along the South Carolina coast. Stocks NEW YORK 10:30 a.m. (AP) Stocks AMR Corp AT&T.Corp re Airgas '•.
