PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - Pittsburgh saw 3.7 inches of rainfall Sunday, making it the second wettest day in the city's history. 

Remnants from tropical storm Gordon hit Western Pennsylvania with rain beginning Friday night with hope it will clear out by Tuesday morning. The storm increased Pittsburgh's accumulation for the year to 40.90 inches of rain, 13 inches above normal, according to the National Weather Service. 

As a result, several roads in the Pittsburgh area closed indefinitely Monday morning as crews begin cleanup, including the "bathtub" portion of the Parkway East. Others experienced flooding, but are still open to traffic.
