More photos and images are coming in from Livingston Manor, the Sullivan County hamlet that appears to have borne the worst of last night's flooding in the Catskills region.
Kurt Knuth lives in an apartment on Main Street in the hamlet, which gave him a front row seat to the floodwaters that covered the streets. In an email, Knuth wrote that it wasn't just the Cattail Creek that flooded, although that stream probably caused the most severe damage.
"The Little Beaverkill river did indeed also overrun its banks along Pearl Street and added to the volume of water on the streets," he wrote.
Knuth, who manages Livingston Manor's community garden, is getting jaded about the flooding, which seems to happen on an annual basis.
"This happens once a year now," he told the Watershed Post today in a telephone interview. "The community garden was destroyed yet again. This is the fourth time in a row this has happened."
