Red Cross Assisting As Multiple Counties Recover From Overnight Flooding

ALLEGHENY COUNTY (KDKA) — Multiple counties are recovering Saturday after storms caused severe flooding overnight.

The American Red Cross sent teams out to Washington, Fayette and Allegheny counties to assist flood victims.

Finleyville and Washington City in Washington County were hit particularly hard.

A greenhouse in Finleyville lost more than 15,000 flowers that they usually sell to local Giant Eagles, and some of their cows were swept away in flood waters.

A shelter was opened at the New Eagle Recreation Hall on Chess Street to offer help. An additional location at the South Strabane Fire Department on Oak Spring Road was placed on stand-by, but was not opened.

Flooding also caused a landslide on Route 837 between Monongahela and Donora in Washington County. PennDOT crews were called to clear the road, but it was unclear when the road would be reopened.
