Flooding causes road blockages

Several local roads are being flooded due to recent rainfall and snow melting.

Pine Avenue in Warren was covered with water early Friday morning, forcing drivers to take alternate routes.

The Shenango Township Police in Lawrence County, Pa., has advised that Dougherty Road should be avoided for the rest of Friday. The road, near Old Butler Road, is closed until water recedes.

In Mahoning County, State Road 165 is closed between U.S. 62 and State Road 46 because of flooding, according to Ohio Department of Transportation public information worker Brent Kovacs.
