NEWS FROM PA. FLOOD AREA
ELYSBURG — Despite serious flood damages, Knoebels Amusement Park hopes to have most of its facilities open this weekend. Spokesman Joe Muscato says flooding in the park was worse than in 1972. Parts of the park had never had water before and some buildings were moved. The clean-up started as soon as the water from Roaring Creek and Mugser’s Run receded. Each ride at the park is being thoroughly inspected before being reopened. The roller coasters, including the Phoenix, are fine but other rides were damaged. The Daily Item reports, plans are to post on the park’s website – www.knoebels.com - a list of rides that will be available this weekend.

BLOOMSBURG - The annual Bloomsburg Fair in Columbia County is one of the largest and longest running fairs in Pennsylvania. But after it was flooded out by the Susquehanna River, the fate of the fair is up in the air. The Bloomsburg Fair is scheduled to start on September 24th, so far organizers say they have not made a decision on whether to cancel it. On Monday, vendors who have stands at the fair volunteered their time, tying to clean up the mess left behind after last week's flooding. Fair organizers say anyone wanting to help won't be turned away. Fair officials say they plan to make a decision whether to hold the Bloomsburg Fair by 6 o'clock Wednesday evenening.
