SHAMOKIN — There has been a water main break behind the Shamokin Post Office on Commerce Street, which has poured a large volume of water onto that street. Officials from Aqua Pennsylvania, the city and county have been notified and are on the scene to repair the 6-inch main. Drivers are asked to avoid this portion of Commerce Street until repairs have been made.
Water has been shut off in the vicinity of Commerce Street near the Aqua Pa. building, and Madison Court has also been affected. It is expected that the water will be turned on again between 8 to 10 p.m.
