KDKA meteorologist Mary Ours says there is still a Flood Advisory for the Ohio River.

Flooding is occurring at Connoquenessing Creek in Beaver County and at the Allegheny River near Kittanning in Armstrong and Clarion County. Pike and Rimer are a few places where the water could rise on Saturday night.

Aerial images from NewsChopper 2 late Friday morning show floodwaters surrounding homes and bridges in Fombell, Beaver County, and Zelienople, Butler County.

Rising water has forced many roads, as well as the Mon Pier in downtown Pittsburgh, to close.

PennDOT said Route 10 will also close at 4 p.m. in both directions due to a forecast of possible flooding. It will close between I-279 Parkway North/Fort Duquesne Bridge and Fort Duquesne Avenue. The ramps from northbound I-279 and southbound to Bypass 10 will also be closed.
