Flooding Still Creating Problems In Capital Region

It’s been a couple of days since we’ve had any rain or snow, but with all the snow melt and rain that we did have, The National Weather Service still has flood warnings for people in Albany, Schenectady and Saratoga Counties, until 3:15 p.m., this afternoon.

Our friends at CBS6 are reporting that flooding has been reported on several area roads. Some of the flooding also involves several houses on Rosendale, Forts Ferry and Riverdale Roads in the Latham and Niskayuna areas. Some of the water has receded, but if the ice jams on The Mohawk move, there may be flooding at the Colonie Town Park, and Canal Road and Towpath Road in Crescent. There is also flooding reported on parts of Warren County.

On Friday, Saturday and still today, there are some local roads closed that weren’t near any rivers. I found that out as I went to go down Rapp Road, from Washington Avenue Extension, in Albany.

With temperatures expected in the 40s today, there will be more melting, including the ice jams on the river. Remember if you’re on a road and you see that it has been flooded, (like they say) turn around, don’t drown. Please be safe.
