Meadville city manager tells us evacuations may be necessary

Local News

Meadville is hit with severe flooding.  The Meadville City Manager, Andy Walker, tells us an ice jam along French Creek caused backups throughout the area with some locations seeing several inches of water. 

Mead Avenue Bridge and multiple other roadways closed due to flooding.  Walker says once the dam eventually broke, a lot of the water drained, but freezing is still a concern.  Walker saying, “Hopefully, the worst is over at this point for us and we’re still monitoring… there’s obviously low-lying neighborhoods up stream… the Asbury east and west neighborhoods and we’ll… see if any evacuations are necessary.”

The Crawford County Department of Public Safety is urging people not to drive on flooded roads.
