The Swatara Creek was already four feet over its normal level, which contributed to one person drowning last weekend, as Daily Voice previously reported.

It is estimated that it took on several more feet of water, leading it to over flow onto nearby roads on Wednesday night.

In Hanover Township the Conestoga Creek also overflowed into nearby roads and the Green Valley Swimming and Sports Club.

Over in York, Tyler Run Creek overflowed into the roads, but receded before anyone was swept away.

The Susquehanna River also started to rise to near to capacity.

Heavy rains also closed and slow traffic in many areas of downtown and midtown Harrisburg.

Route 222 also flooded between Oregon Pike & Brownstown and was still closed during morning traffic on Thursday.
