Penn Hills largely escapes storm damage

Wednesday, July 10, 2013, 1:15 p.m.
 

Despite a good deal of flooding to its south, Penn Hills escaped with few storm-related issues on Wednesday morning, according to public-works head Gerry Nosal.

“We had flooding in two locations — on Rodi Road (by the Sunoco station on the 600 block) we had some standing water, but it wasn't enough for them to shut the road down,” Nosal said.

Additionally, the storm left standing water near St. Susanna Parish on the 200 block of Stotler Road, but that road did not close, either.

Nosal said his department also dealt with downed trees on Lott Road and Glendale Road near its intersection with Hochberg Road.

“We fared pretty well,” Nosal said. “We cleaned basins in the morning before the storm hit.

“We wanted to try and be proactive.”

A flash-flood warning issued by the National Weather Service is set to expire at 1:15 p.m. on Wednesday for Allegheny County. Weather.com is forecasting scattered thunderstorms Wednesday evening with a 60 percent chance of additional rain.
