7:30pm: Reports coming out of Windham are dire indeed. Here's one from our Hurricane Irene Catskills liveblog:
Most of the mountaintop communities of Greene county are still without power. Many bridges are washed away and roads are impeded. This is ver alarming considering the elderly population of the area along with the lack of official warning.
