After the harsh conditions from Tuesday’s storms, the Butler area may not get a reprieve today. A flash flood warning has been extended for Butler County as we could see storm cells hit again later in the day.
The National Weather Service has extended a flood warning for the region until 11:15 p.m. tonight. A flash flood watch will remain in effect until 2:15 Thursday morning.
Tuesday saw certain areas receive massive rain amounts. The Sarver area reported getting 4.65 inches of rain. Adams Township meanwhile received over three inches.
There still are multiple roads that have been closed due to flooding and downed trees including Three Degree Road in Penn Township beginning at Renfrew Road and continuing to Railroad Street as well as Hartmann Road starting at the intersection with Route 528 and ending at Seneca School Road. Weather permitting, the roads could reopen Thursday morning.
Route 288 in Zelienople Borough is closed between Route 588 and Grandview Boulevard due to flooding. That road could reopen Thursday weather permitting. Route 2011 in Clinton Township is also closed due to flooding between Miller Road and Anderson Road. That closure will continue at least through the end of June due to roadway damage.
However, power outages were minimal with just over 300 First Energy customers without power as of 9 a.m. Wednesday morning.
