Tropical Storm Lee Forces Game Changes
UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Heavy rain in the region, combined with forecasts for more of the same over the next few days, have Penn State officials planning for a number of changes for gameday parking and traffic on Saturday, Sept. 10, when the Nittany Lions take on Alabama at 3:30 p.m. at Beaver Stadium.
Adverse weather, expected to continue until Saturday, has caused some flooding in the region and has saturated fields that are generally used for vehicle parking during Penn State home football games.
Fans planning to come to Saturday's game should be prepared for possible relocation of their vehicles to areas with paved surfaces that may be farther away from the stadium. Shuttle service will be provided for fans who may be redirected to offsite lots.
More information will be provided as it becomes available. Officials are attempting to assess the situation and provide viable alternatives for redirecting possibly 5,000 vehicles to offsite lots. Fans should check for the most accurate and current information at either http://live.psu.edu or http://GoPSUsports.com online.
Rain to continue in Centre Region; football parking likely affected
The National Weather Service in State College is predicting significant rainfall in Central Pennsylvania will continue through Thursday evening. Between 2.25 and 3.25 inches of rain are predicted to fall between Wednesday morning and Thursday night. Flood warnings are in effect for several area rivers, and a flood watch is in place for a large swath of the state until Thursday evening. Rain is expected to taper off on Friday, with a possibility for scattered showers on Saturday.
The predicted precipitation, combined with rain that already has fallen in the area as a result of tropical storm Lee, is likely to cause changes in parking plans for the Penn State vs. Alabama football game on Saturday, Sept. 10. Grass fields that traditionally are used for parking likely will be too saturated for use.
