An electrical issue connected with Tuesday night’s storms has forced Pine-Richland Middle School to close Wednesday.

Pine-Richland School District says the middle school is the only school affected by weather issues and that some bus routes may be delayed as drivers navigate potentially storm-ravaged roadways.

The National Weather Service in Moon estimated that more than 3 inches of rain fell in parts of northern Allegheny County, and a flood warning remained in effect through Wednesday morning.

With the threat of more afternoon storms, some of which could be severe, a flash flood watch also is in effect until Wednesday night.
