A neighborhood street completely flooded in West Chester Township Saturday morning. After the water level subsided, crews worked to clear mud off the road.


Lightning sparked a fire at an apartment building on Preakness Drive in Florence. An awning at the Paddock Club apartments burned, but the fire didn't spread. Rain helped put it out.

Heavy rains opened up a sinkhole behind a home on Meadowglen Drive, in Springfield Township. The property is near a creek.

Township employees covered the hole with plywood and two-by-fours; they planned to return for a more permanent fix next week.

In East Price Hill, a tree brought down a power line on Fairbanks Avenue.

Friday night's storms left nearly 10,000 Duke Energy customers without power. That was down to about 1,500 by early Saturday, then rose again as the second round of storms moved in.
