Eldred Township, Lycoming County--The flood destroyed some well-traveled roads and bridges in Lycoming County.
Neighbors describe the damage as unbelievable.
Tom Ott of Eldred Township says, "It sounded like an explosion and I watched it fall right into the Loyalsock Creek."
A road to nowhere. Wallis run road in Eldred Township now leads straight into the Loyalsock Creek.
Ott adds, "The trees fell off into the creek and within an hour the road disappeared into the creek."
But the water's wrath wouldn't stop there.
The Slabtown Bridge just down from Wallis Run took a beating as well.
Ott says, "About an hour later, trees smashed into the bridge and it went down in a 45 degree angle."
The two main arteries connecting this rural part of Lycoming County to Montoursville were now no more, leaving many people with nowhere to go.
Charlie Harlin, Gamble Township, says, "They said get out because you'll be blocked in because we couldn't go out either way. We were stuck for three days."
Some detours have since been opened up, but it's a heck of a ride to get anywhere in this part of Lycoming County.
Ott notes, "At first we were going through my mom's yard until they put a temp road up. Now we have to go all the way down Wallis Run, up 973, over the mountain and back down. What took 20 minutes now takes about 45."
Neighbors say this year's flood was a stunner.
Even Agnes didn't put up this kind of fight.
Harlin adds, "Well what can you say? The bridge is out. What can you say?"
