York, Pa. – A sinkhole opened up in the parking lot of a York County Hardee’s in Manchester Township. The restaurant had to be temporarily closed because of the sinkhole.

The office has also sent out their workers to other parts of York County to survey the damages caused by the storm. This information will then be sent to the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency to forward to the federal government.
