With some notable exceptions (more) (more) (more), Greater Utica was spared the worst of Hurricane Irene.
Not so our friends to the east . . . YNN has some incredible footage of flooding down the Mohawk River and Schoharie Creek. I-90 is still closed. Traffic is still snarled in Johnstown. The Elwood Museum in Amsterdam is devastated and Guy Park Manor damaged. A death in Glen has been confirmed. Canal locks are swamped in Rotterdam and the canal's reopening is uncertain. The historic Stockade District of Schenectady had major damage.
The extent of the devastation is just starting to sink in.
