Heavy rains bring minor flooding in eastern NY
SCHENECTADY (AP) -- Heavy rains are bringing minor flooding to some rivers and streams around the Hudson Valley.
The National Weather Service in Albany says there was minor flooding Friday along the Hudson River in Troy and along the Mohawk River in Schoharie County. The high water on the Hudson forced crews to temporarily suspend dredging the upper river of PCBs as part of a multi-year Superfund project.
More than an inch of rain fell over parts of eastern New York beginning Thursday. The weather service says Richmondville in Schoharie County received 2.81 inches of rain. West Shokan in Ulster County had 2.85 inches. Albany set a record for the day with 1.55 inches of rain.
Rivers and streams were expected to crest Friday morning. More rain is forecast later Friday.
