In Durham, trouble areas during flooding include Guire Road and lower Parmelee Hill Road. In Killingworth, be on the lookout if you use Lovers Lane and in Middlefield Route 147 often gets flooded. Know any other trouble spots?

The lower end of Miller Road in Middlefield almost always gets flooded during storms.

Pickett Lane tends to flood toward both ends of the road due to the road crossing over Allyn Brook at these two places.
