Naveen Dhaliwal reports on the winning tickets in Saturday night's Powerball drawing.

Lottery officials report there were two winners in Saturday's estimated $687.8 million Powerball jackpot, and one winning ticket was sold in New York City.

The winning ticket was sold at West Harlem Deli at 2040 5th Avenue and East 126th Street. The winner's identity is not yet known.

The other ticket was sold at Casey's convenience store in Redfield, Iowa, a rural community of about 800 people.

Each ticket is worth an annuitized $343.9 million, or $198.1 million cash.

The winning numbers were 8, 12, 13, 19 and 27, and Powerball 4.


Additionally, there were two New Jersey Lottery tickets sold that matched five of the five white balls drawn to win $1 million second prize. They were sold at the Marlton Shop Rite on West Route 70 in Marlton and Welsh Farm Deli & Convenience on Towne Center Drive in North Brunswick.

No one had hit the jackpot since August 11 when the $245.6 million prize went to a man from Staten Island, New York.
