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.
RobertJT on Twitter reports that radio WRIP, which has been heroically covering the flooding in Windham all day while running on generator power, is going home:
5:20pm: Finally, some photos from Windham, via ABC 7 Eyewitness news. It's bad:

Windham, Ashland, Jewett, Hunter, Tannersville and Lexington are almost totally cut off.
2pm: Photo of streets in Windham submerged by Don Meltz via Twitter.
We're having a hard time getting information about mountaintop towns in Greene County. If you have photos of info about what is happening, please get in touch.
