In Pennsylvania, New Albany Borough was again socked by flash flooding. That community was one of several small towns sustaining severe damage from rushing water following several fast-moving storms that dumped inches of rain on the region.
The New Albany Free Library reported a loss of hundreds of books over the weekend as water rushed into the building. Officials were still assessing the extent of that damage before the latest storm dumped 2-3 inches of rain in the southeastern corner of Bradford County.
