Then witnesses said she was southbound.Warren Fire Department said the current carried the woman about one-half mile down the river from South Street to near Trinity Baptist Church, 235 Highland Ave. SW, where Warren police were able to pull her to shore and firefighters carried her to the road.
Boil alert lifted
A boil alert recommended Friday for parts of Youngstown and Austintown was lifted Sunday by the Youngstown Water Department. The boil alert was necessitated after a power outage disrupted a major supply line resulting in low water pressure in an area east of Raccoon Road, north of New Road and west of Belle Vista Avenue. The city water department said the water is now safe for drinking.
