Northeastern parts of Allegheny County are cleaning up debris this morning after flooding closed some roads in the area Thursday night.

In Fawn, water covered Howes Run Road and Bull Creek Road, where a car flooded Thursday afternoon. Township police said no one was trapped, no injuries were reported, and the roads are passable this morning.

Flooding in the 2100 block of Saxonburg Boulevard closed that road in West Deer about 8 p.m. Little Deer Creek flooded near Deer Lakes Park Thursday night, according to the National Weather Service.

Fawn police said water has largely receded in that township this morning. An Allegheny County emergency dispatch supervisor had no reports of rescues because of flooding.

The heaviest rain fell in the northeast corner of Allegheny County. An inch and three quarters was recorded in Natrona Heights, according to the weather service. In Butler County, more than an inch of rain fell just west of Ford City.
