    While initial weather predictions did not call for the same heavy rain seen last week, the storms that started Thursday night have caused flooding in several areas around the Beaver Valley.

    As road crews work to address another wave of flooding in several areas around western Pennsylvania, officials from PennDOT and several local municipalities are advising motorists to avoid certain roads around the region. As of the latest media release, there is no timeline for reopening roads affected by flooding, but forecasts have predicted that rain will continue into Friday night.

    Flood warnings were put in place for Beaver County communities on Thursday evening and have remained in effect for the region amid record-breaking rainfall. On Friday evening, the National Weather Service of Pittsburgh extended these flood warnings until early Sunday.

    Local roads affected by the flooding as of 1:30 p.m. Saturday include:
