A flood warning for urban and small stream flooding has been issued until 11:15 p.m. today for Bedford, Blair, Cambria, Huntingdon and Somerset counties, the National Weather Service in State College said.
The weather service urged people to especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the dangers of floods and flash floods.
Most flood deaths occur in automobiles, and never drive your vehicle into areas where water covers the roadway, the weather service said. Just 1 foot of flowing water is powerful enough to sweep vehicles off the road.
The weather service also issued flood warnings for several rivers and streams in the Mirror coverage area.
The warnings are in effect from Tuesday afternoon to Wednesday afternoon for: the Little Juniata River at Spruce Creek, the Juniata River at Huntingdon, Aughwick Creek at Shirleysburg. the Raystown Branch of the Juniata River at Saxton and the Frankstown Branch of the Juniata River at Williamsburg.
