‘I opened the front door and it was like a river out there’

By Kayla Vaughn and Stephanie Jadrnicek

Raging thunderstorms dumped 4 inches of rain on Lancaster County in five hours Saturday night, flooding apartments, stranding motorists and shutting down roads.
No one was injured in the storm, but county Fire Marshal Russell Rogers said about half a dozen people had to be rescued from floodwaters at Dalton Ridge Apartments off Monroe Highway in Lancaster.
It was raining hard at 9:30 p.m. when Mary Ann Davis got home to Dalton Ridge. She went inside, phoned her sister and was watching TV when she heard the sound of water running.
