• Heavy rain causes panic in Overbrook


    PITTSBURGH - Heavy rain brings on a sense of panic for Overbrook neighbors because it can cause flooding.

    “I just wait for the water to come in,” said neighbor Joe Guillen.

    Guillen and his two neighbors said years of debris buildup and poor drainage along Saw Mill Run are the sources of the problem.

    Neighbor Jeff Bairley said the worst flood happened last July, ripping the door from its hinges and allowing more than 5 feet of water inside.

    “Came home from work and the basement door was hanging,” said Bairley.

    Neighbors said they’ve spent thousands of dollars repairing damage over the years.
