Another Cold Front to Bring Rain to Twin Tiers
Even as the long cleanup is just getting underway from flash flooding in the Twin Tiers September 18 the National Weather Service in Binghamton says there is a possibility of isolated flash flooding from a strong cold front poised to move through late September 21. River flooding is not expected.
Several roads are still impacted by the flooding earlier this week. The Tioga County Sheriff’s office still lists the Candor Hill Bridge closed until further notice with lane restrictions and detours possible on several other roads in Broome and Tioga Counties.
Hickories Park in Owego, Dorchester Park in the Town of Lisle and Otsiningo Park in the Town of Dickinson were all closed down due to the high water earlier in the week. Other municipal parks may also still be out of commission.
In Pennsylvania, where communities in the northeast part of the state have been repeatedly slammed by heavy rain and flooding since July, Secretary of Banking and Securities, Robin Wiessmann, cautioned against charitable scams and offers of investment taking advantage of flood damage.
Weissmann says investors should watch for unsolicited email, media messages, crowdfunding pitches or telephone calls promoting investment pools or bonds to help storm victims or putting money into water removal or purification technology, electric generating devices and property remediation programs.
