Center Elementary School in Plum became a gathering place for grieving friends and teachers. Brenna Griffith, 12, and her 8-year-old sister Mikaela, were students at the school. The girls, along with their mother Kimberly, died when their vehicle sank in the flash flood on Washington Boulevard Friday.
After conducting an intense search of the Washington Boulevard area with cadaver dogs, authorities moved their search for a missing woman who was swept away in Friday’s flash flooding to the Allegheny River.
Washington Boulevard remains closed after a flash flood Monday evening. PennDOT says crews are cleaning up the mess on Route 8 between Highland Avenue and Negley Run Boulevard.
