Small Fla. city wonders who won Powerball jackpot

Posted: Updated:

ZEPHYRHILLS, Fla. (AP) — So who has the winning Powerball ticket?

Some lucky person walked into a Publix supermarket in suburban Tampa over the past few days and bought a winning ticket now worth an estimated $590.5 million.

On Sunday, Zephyrhills residents wondered who the winner of Powerball's highest jackpot in history might be. The ticket-holder hadn't come forward yet. The store and parking lot were abuzz with activity and TV live trucks. A Publix spokeswoman said there are rumors about who won, but the store doesn't know.

Zephyrhills is a small city in Pasco County, about 30 miles northeast of downtown Tampa. Once a farming town, it's now known for skydiving and retiree mobile home parks. It's also home to Zephyrhills bottled water.

A lottery official said the ticket-holder would be Florida's sixth Powerball winner.
