Water on roads in Cairo

A trained weather spotter reporting to the National Weather Service and the good folks at WGXC saw some high water covering Rte. 145 in Cairo this afternoon, at its intersection wtih Rte. 23.

From the weather spotter at 3:06pm, via NWS's Storm Summary page:

WATER MOVING RAPIDLY ACROSS SR 23

The Department of Highways reported Rte. 145 closed just over an hour later:

ROUTE 145 CLOSED DUE TO FLOODING.

From WGXC's Tom Roe:

WGXC staff have witnessed a tree on a house in Hudson (at intersection of Fairview Ave. and Columbia St., around 2 p.m.), have seen one lane blocked by a tree on State Route 23 in Claverack just east of the intersection with 23B (around 3 p.m.), and witnessed both north and south-bound lanes of Route 145 in Cairo closed just where the road meets Route 23, with excessive water runoff on the road. There are many other accidents, trees down, and large amounts of water on the roadway, and the temperature is dropping and the last of the precipitation tonight may be snow.
