A strong storm system slowly moved through Westmoreland County Friday evening, unleashing a torrential downpour throughout Unity Township.

The rainfall, at least 1.5 inches of rain, according to the National Weather Service in Pittsburgh, caused area creeks to overflow and forced multiple road closures due to standing water shortly before 7 p.m. Friday.
