O'HARA TOWNSHIP, Pa. — A state of emergency has been declared in O’Hara Township after damaging flooding Monday night.
Some of the most significant damage occurred in the area of Old Freeport Road, which was still covered in mud Tuesday morning. The road is closed.
The parking lot of Nancetta's Ristorante was ripped apart as Squaw Run Creek spilled over its banks.
“It was raging. It was up high. It was coming up above the road,” Deb Brandon, of O’Hara Township, said.
