Mechanicville declares state of emergency

MECHANICVILLE -- The City of Mechanicville declared a State of Emergency Wednesday evening due to flooding. Several streets were impassable after heavy rainfall and a water main broke in front of City Hall causing residents to lose water.

Flooding reached its peak around 7pm when Central Ave and Main St were shut down because of large pools of water. Crews worked to clear storm drains and the water receded within an hour.

Along Broadway, crews were called to help several homeowners pump water out of their basements.

The hose broke and so my dad was trying to duct tape it up, but then the cellar filled up and there was like four inches of water and we had to call the fire department out to help us out, said Sarah Fiacco, whose cellar flooded.
Police asked residents to remain off the roads until 10am tomorrow.

A boil water order was issued to city water customers before the decision was made to completely turn off water. Saratoga County Emergency Services was unsure when water would be restored.
