Winter warm-up causes minor flooding

CHENANGO COUNTY – Due to unseasonably warm weather, melting snow in combination with rain fall has caused minor flooding problems throughout some areas of Chenango County. The National Weather Service in Binghamton has issued an urban and small stream advisory for all of Chenango County, in effect throughout Thursday morning.

Norwich Emergency Management Officer A. Wesley Jones said this morning the Chenango River at Norwich was currently at a level of eight and a half feet, only half a foot from the flood stage. “Flooding will be relatively minor,” Jones said, “but it could reach the point we get flooding across East Main Street.”
