Flood Damage Assessment
Since Tuesdays rain and flooding the southern tier of NY from the Catskill Mountains west into Binghamton was pretty bad. Thursday it took us 7 hours to drive home from downstate (147 miles). All interstates were closed so had to weave through the mountains and back roads to return home.
Went out on the LT today to survey the damage. Binghamton, Vestal, Conklin, Hancock, Deposit, Windsor, Unadilla and Harpursville were flooded. Many families were evacuated and lost everything. Worst hit was Walton. Total devastation down town; nothing was spared. National Guard and Army corp of engineers are on scene for the clean-up effort.
We were lucky, only lost half of our driveway.
