PennDOT urges motorists to be alert to water on roadways, obey warning signs and traffic control devices, and never drive through flooding or standing water on roads. Shallow, swiftly flowing water can wash a car from a roadway. Also, the roadbed may not be intact under the water.

Motorists can check conditions on major roadways by visiting 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 950 traffic cameras.

511PA is also available through a smartphone application for iPhone and Android devices, by calling 5-1-1, or by following regional Twitter alerts accessible on the 511PA website.

Venango County 9-1-1 reported that Deep Hollow Road is currently closed, as it is washing out.

Seneca Volunteer Fire Department was on the scene at 10:40 a.m. awaiting PennDOT.

There were over 150 flooding-related calls throughout the evening into the early morning hours, according to a representative of Venango County 9-1-1

No injuries have been reported.
