Body of 2nd apparent flooding victim found in central Pennsylvania

ELIZABETHTOWN, Pa. (AP) - Authorities say the body of a second apparent victim of this week's flooding in central Pennsylvania has been found.

State police tell lancasteronline.com that the body of a woman was found by a civilian Thursday in Conewago Creek near Elizabethtown. That's about three-quarters of a mile downstream from where police said a 19-year-old woman was swept into the swollen creek on Monday as she tried to cross it.

Police say the woman will need to be identified using dental records. An autopsy was set for Friday.

An 18-year-old man also drowned, apparently when he was swept away by floodwaters in Adams County when his car got stranded. His body was found Wednesday.

Five days of downpours brought a foot or more of rain to an over 100-mile swath of Pennsylvania.
