CHENANGO COUNTY – After several days of unseasonably warm temperatures, which caused minor flooding throughout areas of Chenango County, winter weather is now moving back into the area. And it isn’t coming quietly.
Chenango County’s flood troubles may not be completely over. A flood warning is still in effect for the Chenango River at Greene, until noon today. The river had exceeded the flood stage at 3 a.m. The National Weather Service in Binghamton stated the river had crested and was expected to begin receding later in the day. The rest of the county experienced minor flooding yesterday, with the majority of the water flooding fields around the river banks.
