Scattered flood-related problems occurred in parts of the Twin Tiers as a result of today’s heavy rain.

The site where the old MacArthur Elementary School stood on Vestal Avenue in Binghamton looked like a lake just days after construction on a new school had started.

Up to two feet of water covered a six-block section of State Street on the city’s North Side this afternoon after a pipe carrying Brandywine Creek became clogged.

An excavator was brought in to clear the debris and allow water to flow freely. There were no immediate reports of water-related issues at nearby homes.

The Binghamton fire department assisted Broome County public works crews after a catch basin collapsed near a storage facility on North Floral Avenue. Firefighters helped pump water out of the parking lot of the building where county voting machines and election records are stored.

Minor street and urban flooding was reported in sections of Broome County.

Some underpasses were briefly flooded. A section of Pelican Lane near the George F. Highway in Endwell was impassible because it was covered by water.

National Weather Service meteorologist Erik Heden said most of the region received between one and two inches of rain.

By mid-afternoon, the weather service office at Greater Binghamton Airport in the town of Maine had recorded 1.43 inches of rain since midnight.
