Over 200 Roadways in North Central PA Closed by Flooding

 

Wyalusing Wine Festival Canceled

There’s a long list of events scheduled for this week that have been cancelled due to flooding, including Wyalusing’s Annual wine festival, that was due to take place Saturday, Sept. 10. There has been no word, regarding rescheduling the festival.  Some of the food prepared for the event has been taken to the Wyalusing fire hall which is serving as a shelter for dozens of area residents forced from their homes by flooding.

Travel along most roadways is impossible including many portion of Route 6 and PennDOT is advising that motorist stay off the roadways except in emergencies. A complete list of closed roadways is included at the end of this posting

A state of emergency was declared yesterday afternoon for the entire region. Flooding along the Susquehanna is expected to be worse than during the Agnes Flood in 1972.

Wyalusing’s railroad bridge is completely submerged or washed away. The Wyalusing Creek Plaza is under water and Peoples State Bank and Penn Mart are flooded. We have heard reports that a portion of the PenMart building collapsed. It’s expected that the river will rise above the roadway on Wyalusing’s Rainbow Bridge. We also have unconfirmed reports that water has entered the new Wyalusing elementary school.

Gas stations are running out of gasoline. Wyalusing’s Dandy Mini Mart has no gasoline.

In Meshoppen an emergency shelter was evacuated due to flooding.

All schools in the region are closed.

Road Closures as Sept. 8, 2011 @ 12 noon

Montoursville - PennDOT strongly urges motorists to avoid traveling unless absolutely necessary.

 

More than 200 state roads are flooded and closed in north central counties today and not all of them have barricades.

 

Motorists who must travel are reminded to exercise common sense. Do not drive around barriers (where they are in place) or attempt to travel any flooded roads. It's just too dangerous and you could be placing your safety and the safety of others at risk.
