Heavy rains caused two area waterways to overflow and close nearby roads last Wednesday afternoon.

About 2.75 inches of rain was dumped on the Shippensburg area last week, and water spilled over the banks of Muddy Run Creek in Southampton (Franklin) Township, which caused the closure of Mongul Hill Road. The Conodoguinet Creek in Lurgan Township also overflowed, sparking the closure of Mongul Road.
