The lights are out and the street sweepers are getting a workout on the bridge connecting Columbia and Wrightsville during the annual blitz of mayflies from the Susquehanna River.
Fans were set up at the entrance to the Turkey Hill Experience to protect visitors and floodlights on the ground of Penn Medicine Lancaster General Health's Columbia facility were darkened by dead bugs.
