HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

A deluge of rain is creating flooding concerns across the Midstate.

As of 5:15 a.m. Friday, Cameron Street in Harrisburg was closed between Market Street and Elmerton Avenue because of high water. Dispatchers warned drivers to avoid Cameron Street completely for their Friday commute.

The Basic Steps Daycare Center, at 1223 N Cameron Street, planned to close at 10:30 a.m. due to flooding.

In Derry Township, police said several roads were closed due to flooding and they advised people use caution on Cocoa Avenue as well because of high water.

Residents were evacuated from their homes near Pine Road in Dover Township, York County early Friday morning. Water from a nearby creek flooded the roadway and caused problems for people in the area. It's not clear how many people had to leave, but emergency crews were on scene for quite some time rescuing them from their homes.

Indian Rock Dam Road in Manchester Township, York County remains closed after an overnight water rescue. It happened shortly before 2 a.m. The area is prone to flooding. There's no word on the driver's condition.

The Northeastern School District planned to dismiss the middle and high schools at 11:30 a.m., and the intermediate and elementary schools at 12:30 p.m.

Rainfall amounts reached between one and four inches yesterday. Some isolated areas received over four inches, which prompted a flood warning for the Midstate.

Small streams and low lying areas prone to flooding will need to be monitored Friday. An additional 1-2" is possible throughout the day.
