We’re entering the fourth day of rain, but we should get some relief soon.
The Flash Flood Watch that went into effect on Monday will finally cease at 8 p.m. this evening.
Forecasters with the National Weather Service Office in Pittsburgh urge residents to not get complacent, and to heed the warnings as they come in.
As the rain grew stronger on Wednesday evening, southeastern and northwestern Butler County were both under a Flash Flood Warning as places like Saxonburg, Sarver, Freeport, Mars, Portersville and West Sunbury were experiencing flooding. Those warnings expired by 8:30 p.m. Wednesday.
A Flash Flood Warning means flooding is imminent or actually happening. A watch means conditions are right for flash flooding to occur.
No major, widespread problems have been reported.
