WILKES-BARRE -- Some state lawmakers are providing funding for emergency repairs to a crumbling flood wall in Luzerne County.

Governor Tom Wolf, Senator John Yudichak, and Representative Eddie Day Pashinski announced that the state would commit $125,000 for a temporary fix to the Solomon Creek flood wall in Wilkes-Barre to try to prevent further erosion until a full repair can be made.

A section of the wall collapsed earlier this month.

Officials estimate it could cost $12 million to replace the wall.
