Pittsburgh’s Public Parking Authority said it will close the Mon Wharf parking lot on Friday due to a flood advisory.

The parking authority’s alert, issued Thursday, said all vehicles parked at the lot on Thursday must be removed by 7 p.m. or face relocation.

“Additional parking is available at the First Avenue Garage and/or Second Avenue Plaza,” the alert said.

The National Weather Service issued a flood advisory for Pittsburgh on Wednesday. About an inch of rainfall is expected Friday and the Ohio River is expected to rise and reach up to nearly 20 feet.

The NWS flood advisory said water begins to flow onto the north shore river walk between the stadiums at 19 feet.
