PITTSBURGH —

A strong storm system that moved through much of the Channel 11 viewing area Sunday caused widespread flooding and some evacuations.

Channel 11’s Dave Bondy reported that more than a dozen people living around Sandy Lake in Venango County had to evacuate their homes because of rising waters.

Severe Weather Team 11 meteorologist Valerie Smock said areas north of city were hit the hardest by Sunday’s storms.

In Armstrong County, many people reported flooded basements and roads. But no evacuations were issued.

Closer to Pittsburgh, a tree fell on the Boulevard of the Allies causing single lane restrictions while crews worked to remove it from the road.

Smock said Monday will remain cloudy with occasional showers, mainly late in the morning through the evening hours.

Humidity will be low and the temperatures will follow. It’s possible the temperatures Tuesday morning will tie or break record lows, Smock said.

The high will 71 and low will 52 Monday. Tuesday’s high will be 70 with a low of 55 degrees.
