    Cingras53,

    The water just hasn't made it down to Montague yet. It's on it's way. Last I looked, Callicoon at 95,800 and not yet crested!!! Beaverkill at Cooke's Falls was 42,000. Port Jervis was 104,000 CFS!!! This is dangerous. I heard Roscoe was under water. Some bridges could have problems. Scarry!!!

    Chris,
    Water level on the MS at Barryville is now at 23+ feet.

    That is close to January 1996 when we had the mid winter thaw.

    September 2004 will break that mark.

    A lot of washouts up here.

    Here are three photos that I took this morning.

    None of that water has made it down here yet. The Delaware in Lambertville is only at 10,000cfs. I wonder how long it will take? Might explain why they aren't emptying the Lehigh river resivoirs as of yet.

    Cool

    Down here in SJ it has barely rained at all. It's been super humid and swampy, though. For some reason the entire system skipped us altogether. We haven't even had 1/10th of an inch yet, and I doubt we will. It's been that way most of the year. North Jersey, PA, and NY gets all the rain, we get nothing. Sorry for all you northerners and this relentless rain, especially with the flooding. Those pics look like Winter '96 all over again.

    Beaverkill @ Cooks - 39,100 (Apparently hit 42,000) - heard they evacuated Roscoe and have a big bunch of 17 closed off.


    Callicoon - 99,400
    Hale Eddy - 15,800
    Fishes Eddy - 21,200

    Looks like things have capped off.

    Beaverkill @ Cooke's Falls down to 27,500 at 15:30. Callicoon is at 104,000 at 15:30 and it looks like that will be near the crest figure. Incredible amount of water!!! Hope everyone is OK. The EB and WB below the dams may still be rising due to the res delay but the rain has been over for awhile now so levels should start to recede there soon if they haven't crested already. Many gages are not functioning perfectly (overwhelmed).

    Flooding

    I spent all day Friday on the West Branch in the rain (light), waiting for the olive hatch that hardly happened (around 4PM)
    Woke up this morning and was told that part of the road had washed out from the WB Angler to the Hale Eddy Bridge, and that Route 17 was closed...I drove out carefully around the road collapse, but when I got to Hancock, I was forced to exit and was told that there was severe mud slides across the road. Took a few pictures..and finally got out towards NY around 1PM...I was the only car on the road, and it was a bit spooky...all the way to Rosco without seeing another car either way! In Rosco, the quickway was closed going west..looked like they had a detour set up. Pictures below...
