Local Flooding

A night of heavy rain coupled with the melting of 3 feet of snow in a week has led to serious flooding in counties such as Orange, Dutchess, and Westchester in New York as well as counties in northern New Jersey and western Connecticut. Flooding is expected to peak tonight, with some small streams and tributaries approaching 9 feet of flood waters. Many roads in the worst counties have not only been closed, but washed away entirely.
