CITY OFFICIALS ENCOURAGE FLOOD-PRONE RESIDENTS, BUSINESSES TO REMAIN VIGILANT

Although Pittsburgh did not experience a severe flooding event this past weekend, the City is still at risk and officials are encouraging residents and businesses to remain vigilant.

"Only a small amount of the historic mountain snowpack has melted," Public Safety Director Michael Huss said. "Due to this fact, if we get the right mixture of warm temperature and moderate to heavy rainfall our low-lying areas still have the possibility of flooding."

Officials remain in close contact with the National Weather Service as they are monitoring a developing storm that may hit the area this weekend.

Residents should continue to monitor the situation and be ready for action as they have this past weekend.

Officials will continue to provide information and warnings to keep the public safe.
