Flood Warnings Still In Effect Due to Hurricane Irene

Hurricane Irene left a path of destruction for many people on the east coast of the United States, but this one really hit home, right here in the Albany area, and our surrounding communities.

Hoosick River

According to a report from our friends at YNN, the Town of Colonie has issued a voluntary evacuation, including parts of Menands and Cohoes. Not to mention the many pictures and videos that we saw on WTEN, including the Catskill area, which has been considered a disaster area. Of course, the people in the Middleburgh area, which is pretty much all under water. All the bridges that cross the Schoharie Creek remain closed.

We still have some flood warnings and watches. A flood watch remains in effect until 8 a.m. Tuesday August 30, for Eastern Albany and Schenectady Counties, also Southern Saratoga County. The flood warnings are for people along the Hudson River in Albany and Waterford until Tuesday morning, and Troy and Mechanicville until Tuesday Afternoon. Schuylerville has one until Wednesday evening. People in Schenectady (along the Mohawk River) have the flood warning until Tuesday morning. A flood warning is posted for the Schoharie Creek at Burtonsville until Tuesday afternoon.

And of course our prayers are with all the victims. God bless.
