Ice jam shuts down road in Schuylkill County


An ice jam shut down a road Friday in Schuylkill County.

The Cold Run Creek overflowed its banks in East Brunswick Township.

Officials closed the road to traffic after the creek cascaded onto Catawissa Road.

It's flooded and too dangerous to drive through.

Icy water also flowed into the nearby wooded area.

No word on how soon officials will be able to reopen the road.

The ice jam was caused by the freezing temperatures we've had over the past couple of days.
