Water threatens Milton area Cambria subsection

Megan Searcy stood out on her deck Thursday and watched the growing abyss in her yard crawl closer and closer to her home.

a containment pond near Searcy’s home failed during a mid-May storm, and stormwater storms from a broken drainpipe have searched the ground beneath her property ever since. A chain-link fence that marked the edge of her yard was already crumpled into the hole, and a new orange security fence separated her home from the small cliff that made its way to her apartment.

Until Thursday, no one had given Searcy any indication of where her home was immediate risk, and district officials said they were working to begin repairs soon. So for the time being, Searcy was left alone to wait and watch and care.
