RIDGWAY, Pa. -- Residents of a flooded-out high rise in Elk County could be allowed to return home as soon as Friday.

Some residents of the Dickinson Apartments in Ridgway could be allowed to return to their homes as a contractors finish work on the building's first floor.

Residents were forced out, with some of them needing rescued, as the Clarion River overflowed its bank after hours of heavy rains, which caused flooding in Ridgway in May.

The contractor said the cleanup is ahead of schedule and there are no problems with mold.

"That makes me feel very happy," said resident John Viola. "I'm more concerned that people would get back to their own life."

Contractors said they've been working weekends to get the project finished early.
