SEWICKLEY TOWNSHIP, Pa. (WKBN) – Heavy rains Wednesday caused some problems in the Pittsburgh area.
Several people had to be rescued after getting trapped by flood waters.
A creek in New Sewickley Township went over its banks. The water surrounded several homes and flooded a road.
Five people and five dogs were rescued by a boat.
It was the second time in 11 years some of them had been rescued because of flash flooding.
Bill Mohr said he was sleeping when police called to check him.
“He asked me how the water was, and I got up and looked and was like Oh, it is not good,” Mohr said.
The rain started at midnight and by 3:30 a.m., it was three feet over the road.
