Bradford County Residents Near Lake Sampson Suffer Flooding And No Power

By

The incorporated town near Lake Sampson in Bradford County remains powerless with water levels reaching 2-4 feet. It may be a while before the area is drivable and some residents are still unable to occupy their homes. Clay Electric workers have stated that they will not leave the area until power is restored.

Bill Wilson, a swamp buggy owner, has been using his buggy as a helpful resource.

“We’ve helped the sheriff’s office and the power company get power to the people, to the residents, and helped the sheriff’s office remove people that were stranded,” he said.
