Cleaning up in the aftermath

CHENANGO COUNTY – For the most part, Chenango County rivers and streams are within their banks again and cleanup is underway. For those whose homes sustained damage from record setting floods last week, there is a lot to keep in mind.



Fire and EMS personnel worked throughout the weekend to pump basements and clear roads. Fire Coordinator Matt Beckwith said manpower was provided by six other New York State counties to help the local effort.

“It is outstanding to have this cooperation across the state,” Beckwith said. “We certainly have needed and appreciated the help.”

Chenango County was hit with what many say is the worst flood in memory last week. Life and property were lost, and many residents are still picking up the pieces.
