The Royersford Borough Office of Emergency Management announced that they have added two weather monitoring stations to the area to help the office watch ongoing conditions.
Officer Tom Godin, the borough's Emergency Management Director, said the stations will be called RAM-1 and RAM-2 (which stands for Royersford Atmospheric Monitoring).
RAM-1 is a weather monitoring station perched on the borough hall roof. Godin said it will measure "temperature, barometric pressure, rainfall totals, humidity, wind direction and speed, among other things." The station is also able to upload information directly to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and could become an official NOAA reporting station.
RAM-2 is a water level and wind montioring station set up at the river near First Avenue. It shows river levels and will be especially useful if the area is threatened by flooding.
Godin said the systems do have the capability to be monitored via the internet and he plans to eventually have that available for the public.
"This is the first type of unit for this area and we are proud to have it here in Royersford," Godin said.
