4:10pm: The state of emergency has been lifted across Delaware County except for the towns of Middletown (Margaretville, Fleischmanns, and Arkville) and Roxbury. Middletown residents have a curfew from 5pm to dawn. This isn't carte blanche to drive around, though -- authorities are cautioning that residents should only drive if necessary, and be careful of flooding, downed trees, and live wires.
