MCDONALD (KDKA) — Some western Pennsylvania residents are drying out and cleaning up after another round of storms moved through the region Friday evening, prompting a flood warning.
The National Weather Service issued the Flood Warning for Allegheny and Washington counties until 10 p.m.
Forecasters were also worried about runoff from previous heavy rains causing more flooding.
Latest Weather Forecast:
Flooding and damage were being reported in multiple areas.
In Allegheny County, flooding was reported at Mayview and Boyce Roads in South Fayette, North State Street in Clairton and Boston Hollow Road in Elizabeth Township.
There were also reports of damage and downed trees in Jefferson Hills and Elizabeth Township.
One of the hardest hit areas is McDonald in Washington County.
The 980 Full Service Mart on State Route 980 was flooded out when the heavy rain washed over a hillside and covered the auto service shop in mud and debris. It happened around 6:30 p.m.
“It was heavy enough that we could see the water starting to come in under the garage door, and then shortly there after, the mud started coming down the hill and that’s all a result of Turnpike Commission construction of the new 576 connector. This is about the seventh or eighth time we’ve been flooded like this, and it’s getting very discouraging at this point,” said Mark Finney, the owner of the shop.
He says his office was also flooded. But he adds that he won’t be cleaning up until a representative from the Turnpike comes to survey the damage.
