Friday evening was strange one for Upper Dublin township, as a heavy rainstorm that hit the area around 6:30 p.m. flooded the township and left many in need of emergency assistance. Abington Patch editor Mischa Arnosky was one of those individuals, as his car became stuck in a flash flood on Commerce Drive near West German BMW.

There were no reported injuries around the township, despite a heavy volume of emergency calls. "The Fire Company was dispatched for numerous water rescue calls for people stuck in rising waters in their vehicles," said Fort Washington Fire Company Chief Eric …
