This from the Susquehanna Flood Forecast and Warning System on Friday, January 26–

At 1149 AM EST, water levels are rising along the Susquehanna
River upstream of Turkey Hill in response to a pooling of ice. In
York County low lying areas along Route 624 may see minor
flooding. Across the river in Lancaster County Route 441 south of
Columbia may also see minor flooding.

The ice pack disappears below Safe Harbor Dam. The photos below were taken from Wrightsville, south to the state boat launch at Long Level.
