Flood Warings Remain in affect for Hudson Valley

Hudson Valley - As Tropical Storm Irene hits the Hudson Valley region, residents are reminded that major flooding is expected well inland across the Northeast, with several large rivers in the area likely to remain above flood stage for days.

Very heavy rain continues over the area as the tropical storm brought 4 to 5 inches of rain overnight. 

A Flood Warning remains in affect as flooding is imminent and has been reported throughout the region. 

People are reminded not to drive their vehicle into areas where the water covers the roadway. The water depth may be too great to allow your car to cross safely. Most flood related deaths occur in automobiles. Do not attempt to cross water covered bridges, dips, or low water crossings. Never try to cross a flowing stream, even a small one, on foot.

As of 11:00 A.M. Central Hudson is reporting that 83, 404 customers are currenlty without power.
