Pennsylvania Flash Flooding Leads to Evacuations, Amusement Park Closing

July 26, 2018

Heavy downpours soaked parts of central Pennsylvania, causing evacuations and forcing an amusement park to close for the second time this week.

Hersheypark announced it would be closed Wednesday. The park closed Monday after heavy rain and flash flooding caused Spring Creek, which runs through the amusement park, to rise.

Flash flooding forced emergency services in Hershey to evacuate some people from Sunset Drive Wednesday. More than a handful of roads also were closed where their bridges cross Swatara Creek. The creek is swollen following days of heavy rain.
