Sunday storm washes out some county roads

CHENANGO COUNTY – Three county roads are closed this morning as highway crews work to repair damage caused by flash flooding during Sunday night’s storm, which, according to county officials, dumped as much as 4 1/2 inches of rain in some parts of Chenango County.



According to Emergency Management Officer A. Wesley Jones, two of those roads should be reopened by late morning or early afternoon, while the third may be closed for several days.

“We’re still assessing the damage,” he reported, explaining that sections of County Road 27 near its intersection with State Hwy 206 in the Town of Coventry and County Road 32 between Brisben and South Oxford are currently closed to allow for debris removal associated with the storm. He said he expects crews to have the two county roads cleared and re-opened later today.
