Delaware County update: School closings, road closings

From Diane Galusha, public information officer for the Town of Middletown.

[Additions: Andes School also closed early today, around 12:45: I know this for a fact, because my seventh-grade cousin is currently sitting at my kitchen table. Also, we have been hearing from readers about water coming across Route 28 on Palmer Hill in Andes. Please use extreme caution and don't drive through running water, even if the road isn't on this list. --Ed.]
