Water main breaks in Wormleysburg

Crews worked overnight to fix a water main break that left nearly 20 customers, including an apartment complex, without service and flooded at least two homes.

Officials say the break happened around 5 p.m. Thursday near Third and Stella Streets when a 12 inch pipe cracked.

Others, even into Camp Hill, may have experienced reduced water pressure as a result.

We caught up with one homeowner who had water in her basement.

“I am going to have a lot of cleanup to do,” Susan Hoffman said.

Pennsylvania American Water said they hoped to have the road open Friday morning.

Cumberland County officials say the recent weather is to blame for the break.

It was not immediately available which apartment complex was affected.
