Panama City Officials Clean Up Sewer Spill

PANAMA CITY, Fla. (AP) - Officials are cleaning up a big mess in downtown Panama City after a sewer spill.

According to WJHG TV, a broken pipe sent 25,000 gallons of raw sewage into the streets yesterday morning.

Bay County Health Department officials warn residents not to swim in Massalina Bayou because of possible exposure to contaminated sewage.

It took crews eight hours to stop the leak.
