    It appears things are getting back to normal for residents who live along or near the banks of the Susquehanna River today, as The Patriot-News reports the river levels have returned to normal.

    According to the report, the Susquehanna River had fallen back between its banks, ending what was the worst flooding since Tropical Storm Agnes in 1972.
