Flash flood watch in effect for the Catskills

A flash flood watch is in effect today for eastern New York and western New England, including Greene, Schoharie and Ulster counties. The flash flood watch, issued around 3am by the National Weather Service in Albany, is in effect until 6pm. 

Local flood advisories have been issued this morning for parts of all five Catskills counties: Delaware, Greene, Schoharie, Sullivan and Ulster. For details, see the posts in the Storify widget below.

On Thursday night, flooding struck in central New York, closing roads in Tompkins and Cortland counties and forcing the boat evacuation of dozens of people from a flooded Walmart in Cortland. The National Weather Service in Binghamton has many photos of the flooding submitted by readers on their Facebook page.
