Wallkill River Flood

The road is out, the Flats are completely underwater.
The river crests at ~13' and it must be closer to 15' now.
I'm not sure whether it's still rising.

I considered moving into one of these apartments; the landlord said "of course, you'll have to have flood insurance, as we live on a 100-year flood plain."

Needless to say, we didn't take it. A good thing, too, as there have been two major floods in as many years.
It's terrible though--all the folks that live in that entire building have been evacuated at least until Thursday.

Wow, thanks. I used to have a house at on Outlook Farm Dr. Hope the WallKill Farm Market is OK. Love that place.
