CHENANGO COUNTY – A combination of warm temperatures and rain caused the Chenango River and area streams to rise close to their banks on Wednesday, but there was little spill over.

In Sherburne, the Chenango River crested just after reaching 8 feet. The river hit 8.1 feet before beginning to recede. In Bainbridge, the flood stage is 13 feet. There, the river crested at 15 feet.
