York County dodged a bullet and received the lower end of the 3 to 5 inches it was projected to see over the course of three days.

All told, 3.3 inches of rain was recorded at York Airport in Jackson Township between Monday and Wednesday night, said Andy Mussoline, a meteorologist with AccuWeather.

However, 2.3 inches of that fell on Wednesday alone, he said.

That heavy rain flooded some roads in the county but, for the most part, caused little headache for first responders.

"We didn't have any problems at all today," said Jon Abbott, emergency management coordinator for Glen Rock.

The southern York County town, which has seen flooding from heavy rain in the past, didn't experience any on Wednesday, he said.

Evacuation advised: But residents of mobile homes in one Dover Township neighborhood were advised to seek higher ground as the Conewago Creek rose throughout much of the day Wednesday.

Glenn Jansen Sr., fire chief of Dover Township Fire Co., said residents along the short Pine Road were advised to evacuate Wednesday morning.

"Quite a few have left," he said.

Pine Road and the mobile homes along it have frequently flooded in the past.

Part of the road was water-covered Wednesday night but, for the most part, it was unaffected.

Jansen also said there was little need for firefighter response to calls because of flooding.

"Right now it's just a few flooded creeks," he said. "It's been pretty quiet, luckily."

At one point on Wednesday, York County 911 was reporting 10 roads were closed. Most of the roads are in areas prone to flooding.

The storm that brought the rain is expected to come to an end Thursday but could go out with a stray shower in the afternoon, Mussoline said.

According to the National Weather Service, a flood watch remains in effect until noon Thursday.

Elsewhere: Though York County got off seemingly unscathed, the same can't be said for Maryland.

Baltimore saw 5 inches of rain, most of which fell on Wednesday, Mussoline said. The city had the highest rainfall of any location he'd seen all day.

A block-long section of a residential street collapsed in Baltimore Wednesday afternoon, sending cars sliding down a steep embankment onto railroad tracks and forcing the evacuation of several homes. No injuries were reported.

Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said a sidewalk and retaining wall slid along with mud and debris onto railroad tracks used by CSX.

However, she said it was too soon to determine what caused the collapse.

The Philadelphia area was also hit hard, with 4 to 5 inches falling, mostly on Wednesday, Mussoline said.
