The National Weather Service has extended the wind advisory until 6 p.m. Thursday in York County.

West winds of 15-30 mph with gusts up to 40 mph are expected to continue through the afternoon. These winds could cause minor property damage, power outages and difficult driving conditions for high-profile vehicles.

Reported earlier: A flood watch expired Thursday morning for York County, but a wind advisory remains, and water continued to cause problems on roads.

York County Control logged at least four reported water rescues overnight as tributaries swelled, said county spokesman Carl Lindquist. More than a dozen roads had been closed Wednesday night, but only a few remained closed after water receded Thursday morning, he said.

The flood advisory expired at 8:30 a.m., and the wind advisory until noon, the National Weather Service said.

Met-Ed spokeswoman Kathy Seilhamer said there were scattered power outages Wednesday and early Thursday, with many of them likely caused by high winds and trees.

The top of a pole was damaged in the Red Lion area, resulting in outages for about 1,800 customers for three hours Wednesday, with most customers restored by 5 p.m., she said.

There were about 400 outages throughout the night, but that number had been reduced to about 90 by Thursday morning, she said.

The remaining outages were primarily in the eastern and southern portions of York County, she said.
