CLEARFIELD, Pa. (AP) - The American Red Cross has set up a service center to help residents needing help after last week’s flooding in central Pennsylvania.

Officials said the center that was scheduled to be open from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday at a local fire station in Clearfield may be reopened on Monday.

Heavy rains dumped more than five inches of rain on Clearfield on Thursday night, causing flash floods and a house explosion that hurt four people. Dozens were forced from their homes and some stayed in emergency shelters.

Nicholas Garbacz, regional disaster officer for the American Red Cross of Western Pennsylvania, said volunteers at the center were available to assess the needs of local residents and offer assistance.
