A state of emergency has been declared in a northern New York county after rising floodwaters caused by melting snow and rain closed several roads and bridges.
Officials in St. Lawrence County tell local media that flooding is reported in several communities along the St. Regis River, while other local waterways were being monitored for possible flooding. No evacuation plans have been issued for any towns.
Road closures are also being reported in parts of the southeastern Adirondack, including areas along the upper Hudson and Schroon rivers in Warren County, 50 miles north of Albany.
The Hudson River in the Glens Fall area is expected to crest about four feet above flood stage Wednesday, prompting the National Weather Service to issue flood warnings in effect until Thursday.
