Businesses recover from flooding

Local News


One of the hardest hit flooded areas in Central Pennsylvania has been Philipsburg. The flooding damaged homes, businesses, and roads.

Jeff Tressler, the Regional Manager for Your Building Center, says when he got to this store Tuesday morning there was four inches of rain in the store, and a foot and a half of water in their yard area.

He says Tuesday they were closed to the public, and today they’ve been cleaning up, sorting the good material away from the bad material.

Tressler says they were not expecting to find all this rain water in their store.

“It was a little bit overwhelming, I had never seen anything like that, so it was a little bit of a shock to us,” he said.

Tressler says Your Building Center is losing a lot of money from damage, ranging from lumber loss to panel products loss.
