Minor flooding expected in NY when storm hits

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — The National Weather Service has issued a flood warning for the Hudson River at Poughkeepsie, predicting the river will rise to 3½ feet above flood stage due to the storm surge from the Atlantic.

Moderate flooding was expected Monday night around midnight, with the river subsiding below flood stage around 4 a.m. Tuesday.

The only other flooding predicted along upstate rivers and streams is in the Catskill Mountain region of southeastern New York.

Minor flooding is predicted Tuesday morning along the Schoharie Creek at Prattsville, a Catskill Mountain village that had severe flooding damage from Irene.

Minor flooding is also predicted Tuesday morning along the Esopus Creek at Cold Brook, the Rondout Creek at Rosendale, and the Wallkill River at Gardiner.
