Flooding has caused serious damage in Pennsylvania.
State officials say about 30,000 people have been displaced in the affected areas.
The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection said on Monday that the damage to the lot parking lot at the Poughkeepsie, New York, landfill was estimated at $7.5 million.
State Rep. Mark Pocan (D-Wis.) is asking the federal government to pay for the reconstruction of the lot at Pennzoil’s Poughteville, Pennsylvania, landfill.
“We can’t get through a storm without restoring some of our properties,” Pocan told ABC News.
Pocan said the state needs to fix the problem and that the government should be held accountable for the damage.
The EPA says it has issued a water emergency and has dispatched teams to Pennsylvania to investigate.
Officials say they are still trying to determine how many people have died.
