Lancaster/York Counties Declare Disaster After Flooding

/ WDAC

MOUNT JOY (AP) – Gov. Tom Wolf says state emergency officials are working with local authorities to help them recover from flash floods that prompted water rescues and evacuations and prompted two counties to issue disaster declarations. Wolf said Friday’s flooding “impacted roads, bridges, homes, and critical infrastructure.” He says the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency is working with local municipalities to develop damage assessments and address unmet needs. The emergency management agency said Lancaster and York Counties had issued disaster declarations. Wolf said PennDOT has deployed road construction crews, engineers, and inspectors to assist local municipalities. An eastbound Amtrak train was stranded for 6 1/2 hours in Mount Joy. Amtrak said its Keystone Service and Pennsylvania trains resumed scheduled service Sunday.
