ZEPHYRHILLS, Fla. (AP) - It's been two weeks since residents of Zephyrhills, Fla., learned that a $590 million Powerball ticket was sold inside their city limits.

No one expected the winner to come forward immediately. After all, they reasoned, the person might need a few days to absorb the shock, or to consult with financial advisers.

But now folks are simply beside themselves. "Who won?" they are asking. "Do they live in Zephyrhills? Did they maybe lose the ticket?"

Rumors are flying and residents are eyeballing each other, wondering if there is a multimillionaire in the midst of this small community about 30 miles northeast of Tampa.

The winner has 60 days from the day of the May 18 drawing to claim a lump sum payment.
