Local flooding still a concern, but not as bad as predicted

CHENANGO COUNTY – Due to melting snow and rain showers over the last 24 hours, the National Weather Service in Binghamton has issued flood warnings for rivers in Sherburne, Greene and Bainbridge until about 5:30 p.m. today.

“We did not get the rain we were anticipating. We have some basements filling with water, but for the most part county and state roads are open. There are a couple of isolated wet spots causing issues, but no major concerns so far,” reported Chenango County Emergency Management Director Matthew Beckwith this morning.



City of Norwich Emergency Management Director A. Wesley Jones said most of the threatened areas were in low-lying locations that are typically susceptible to spring flooding.

Jones said the area had rain showers overnight with the northern part of the county receiving the most – at around two inches of precipitation – and the southern part of the county receiving a little less than an inch of rain.
