DAUPHIN COUNTY, Pa. (WHTM) — The intersection of Cameron and Herr Street in Dauphin County is a common area for flooding in Harrisburg when it rains, and the aftermath of Ida was no different.

As of 6:15 p.m., PennDOT crews turned cars and trucks down Herr Street and away from traveling further down Cameron.

The Lisa Lake Mobile Home Park had received evacuation notices around 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday afternoon. Lisa Lake itself sits about 200 yards away from the mobile homes in the community.
