PITTSBURGH (AP) - Officials in western Pennsylvania say another in a series of landslides over the past few months has brought down several telephone poles and utility lines in a Pittsburgh neighborhood.

Allegheny County officials said in a Twitter post Saturday that the landslide in the city’s Overbrook neighborhood closed one lane of a road in the area.

Massive rains that inundated roads and hillsides in the region earlier this year have caused multiple landslides, endangering dozens of structures.

In April, a landslide caused a portion of a road to plummet about 40 feet down a steep hill, prompting evacuation of an apartment complex in East Pittsburgh.

Earlier this month, a landslide in Millville endangered two homes, neither of which was occupied.
