Floods damage roads in Delaware and Schoharie Counties

Multiple towns across the Catskills region declared a state of emergency after flooding caused by thunderstorms, forcing the closure of a number of roads.

The National Weather Service issued a hazardous weather warning early Thursday morning for severe thunderstorms in central New York — followed by a flood warning at 8:57 a.m. for the Mohawk River at the Delta Dam.

Schoharie County

Around 7:30 last night, amidst the heavy storm that flooded several areas of Schoharie County,  police received a report of a husband, wife and cat trapped in their mobile home on South Gilboa road.  

“Water was rising around their home and in ditches surrounding it,” Schoharie County Sheriff Tony Desmond said. “They couldn’t get out.”

Grand Gorge Fire Department’s rescue squad was sent out on the call but soon realized they weren’t able to get the couple out on their own, Desmond said, so they called in for assistance from other local departments from Schoharie and Delaware Counties.

Andes Roundtable at The Hunting Tavern

June 25, 2014 - 7:00pm

Our presentation this week is from Dr. Lynne D. Schneider.  Her topic of choice will be "Shakespeare and the Soldier":  the ideological growth of the modern soldier in Shakespeare, “who" he is, what his role in society is in peacetime and in war, and how that "role" relates to our perceptions of the military today.

Dr. Schneider is currently an Assistant Professor in the Languages and Literature Dept. at Alabama State University having earned her doctorate in December 2011.  Her Dissertation, Warriors for the Working Day, was about the foundations in Shakespeare of the standing (permanent/professional) army, or ground troops.  Read more

Cycling the Catskills: From steep trails to smooth sails

Climb up and over the rocky Shawangunk Ridge to a spectacular vista overlooking the Hudson Valley. Meander along hundreds of miles of carriage lanes and trails through the Mohonk Preserve. Ride through rolling pastureland on 19th- century dirt roads, lined by mossy stone walls and shaded by tunnels of overarching trees. Travel winding country roads for hours without seeing more cars than you can count on your fingers.

The Catskill Mountains were made for cycling. And if you’re not here already, they’re easier to get to than you might think. From New York City, in less than two hours by car, you can leave urban sprawl far behind and discover a cycling utopia. You don’t even need a car to get here: Bring your bike on a scenic 90-minute Metro-North train up the majestic Hudson River to Poughkeepsie, cycle across the Walkway Over the Hudson, and you’re practically in the Catskills.  Read more
