COPLEY TOWNSHIP -- Heavy flooding in Copley Township has police advising some homeowners to leave their homes if things don't improve.

A voluntary evacuation order has been issued to get people out of the water's way, before the waters rise any more.

Boats have been used to bring some people out of their homes after high water surrounded houses in some spots.

Copley Township police say severe flooding has several roads covered in high water. Hametown Road is closed at Spruce Run.

Neighborhoods impacted by the flooding include Kibler, Twin Creeks, Sunny Acres and Briggle.

Police are advising residents of the Little Farms area to consider leaving their homes because water levels in the area are expected to rise significantly in the next few hours.
