Flash Flood Watch cancelled for the southern tier

Flooding on Route 13, Ithaca

Lingering, scattered showers Friday evening from the Adirondacks across the eastern Mohawk Vallet into the Catskills will continue to slowly drift away and eventually end. Water levels from last nights heavy rains over the southern tier are slowly coming down, and thus the Flash Flood watch has been cancelled.

If you encounter flooding remember:

-- Move to higher ground immediately and get out of the danger area.

-- Do not attempt to cross swiftly flowing waters

-- Do not attempt to cross waters of unknown depth by foot, car, truck, or sports utility vehicle.

-- It only takes a few inches of swiftly flowing water to carry vehicles away.

-- If your car stalls in a flooded or low-lying area, abandon it immediately.

-- Turn around, donâ??t drown. Find an alternative route.
