More than two inches of rain fell in less than 24 hours in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, starting on Thursday, February 15, without letting up until Friday. This video, taken Friday, shows a creek bed nearly overflowing its banks.
The Tribune-Democrat reported that several creeks in the Johnstown area overflowed and low-lying areas faced flooding risks. A rock slide was reported in Southmont Borough.
The rain started at 4 pm Thursday and didn’t end until 2 pm Friday, the report said. The steady rainfall and rapid snowmelt contributed to the conditions. Credit: Shayna Blackford via Storyful
