Bald Eagle Creek water levels are high after rainfall Friday, Aug 3, 2018 at the Milesburg Bridge.
Creek and stream levels swelled Friday as south-central Centre County received nearly 4 inches of rain, on top of what had accumulated over the past two weeks.
The State College, Bellefonte and Milesburg areas were under a flood warning until 3:45 p.m., and the county as a whole was under a flash flood/flood watch until 10 p.m., according to the National Weather Service. A small stream flood advisory was also in effect until 6:46 p.m.
The Centre Daily Times reached out to readers over social media to send in their photos and videos of the flooding, and they responded.
Here are some of the highlights:

The National Weather Service said about four inches of rain fell overnight as multiple local creeks spilled into roadways. Crews worked to close streets as traffic slowed to cross the water-covered throughways.
The State College Area school board on Monday approved lighting and removable goal posts for the South Track to increase field options for State High teams. The 70-foot-tall light structures still need approval from Borough Council.
