PITTSBURGH (AP) - About 3,000 Duquesne Light customers remained without power in and around Pittsburgh after heavy rains toppled trees and caused minor flooding in southwestern Pennsylvania.

More than 7,000 customers lost power at the height of Tuesday night’s storm, which delayed the Pittsburgh Pirates game more than 90 minutes.

The worst flooding reported was in Shaler Township, just east of the city, and New Sewickley Township in Beaver County, northwest of the city.

Little Pine Creek overflowed in Shaler, damaging at least 15 homes. Meanwhile, Brush Creek overflowed in Beaver County, flooding roads and stranding some motorists who unwisely tried to drive through standing water.

No injuries were reported.

Duquesne Light expects to restore power to its customers by late Wednesday afternoon.
