WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (AP) – The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection says three water systems could be impacted by a spill of about 55,000 gallons of gasoline into a creek.

Heavy rainfall Thursday night triggered flash floods and landslides that ruptured a Sunoco Logistics pipeline in Lycoming County.

The storm sent floodwaters into hundreds of homes and caused one death.Get breaking news, weather and traffic on the go. Download our News App and our Weather App for your phone and tablet.
