A coroner is attributing the death of a Pennsylvania man to flooding that has soaked the region over the past week

HUMMELSTOWN, Pa. — The Latest on flooding in Pennsylvania (all times local):

5 p.m.

A coroner is attributing the death of a Pennsylvania man to flooding that has soaked the region over the past week.

Adams County Coroner Pat Felix announced her finding Thursday regarding an 18-year-old who was missing since Sunday.

She says the victim was likely stranded by high water in the Biglerville area, then was swept away when he attempted to get out of his van and walk.

Police are continuing to search for a 19-year-old woman last seen trying to cross a fast-moving stream near Elizabethtown.

They've been searching the adjacent land and by air, but the water has been too dangerous to attempt a water search.

A foot or more of rain has drenched a swath of central Pennsylvania since Saturday morning.


1 p.m.

Floodwaters are receding in Pennsylvania, leaving behind a film of mud and dozens of roads that remain closed to vehicular traffic.

Skies are clear Thursday after five days of downpours that brought up to a foot of rain in a swath of central Pennsylvania from north to south.

State police say conditions are still too dangerous to conduct an all-out search for a 19-year-old woman last seen Monday while trying to cross a rain-swollen creek near Elizabethtown. Aerial searches continue.

Residents along the Swatara Creek said it crested about 2 a.m. Thursday in Hummelstown, but the Hersheypark amusement park just upstream remains closed.

Thunderstorms are forecast for Friday.
