The National Weather Service in Albany has issued a Flash Flood Warning for northwestern Greene County and southern Schoharie County until 1 a.m., Thurs., June 26. At 8:55 p.m., Wed., local law enforcement officials reported flash flooding from showers and thunderstorms in the Gilboa area. Additional heavy rain and flash flooding is possible in the larger warned area. Locations in the warning include, but are not limited to Livingstonville, Summit, Middleburgh and Breakabeen. Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the dangers of flooding. If flash flooding is observed act quickly. Move to higher ground to escape flood waters. Do not stay in areas subject to flooding when water begins rising. Do not drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the roadway. Do not attempt to cross swiftly flowing waters or waters of unknown depth. The water depth may be too great to allow your car to cross safely. Turn around, don't drown. A Flash Flood Warning means that flooding is imminent or occurring.
