A late-morning thunderstorm on Saturday dumped more than a half inch of rain during a half-hour period and caused minor flooding in some areas, according to officials.

Between 11:30 a.m. and noon, 0.68 inches of rain fell in parts of the Pittsburgh region, according to the National Weather Service in Moon.

The intersection of Streets Run and Brentwood roads in Baldwin Borough was closed when storm sewers in the area could not handle the volume of rainfall, according to firefighters. The road has been reopened.

Minor flooding and some downed trees were reported.
