evacuations due to flooding

"We've got a jam in the middle of Four Mile Run, and it has pushed the water out of the creek and onto the property.  We need pressure behind it to push this ice out," said McDowell. "Best case scenario is that the ice jam takes off and goes down."
No one was forced out of their homes. All evacuations were voluntary, but Lynn said she had no choice.
"I think we're going to stay at the fire department for a while, but they said we probably won't even be able to go back tomorrow. We don't have anything. We didn't bring anything with us," said Lynn.
