Oct 26, 2021 6:33 am

Tracy Ziemer reports in the Times Union that the fourth major storm in the last several months is expected to drop between four and six inches of rain on parts of Greene County Oct. 26. A Flood Watch has been announced for the southern Hudson Valley for Oct. 26, with parts of Ulster County expecting three or four inches of rain, while the rest of the area could get two or three inches of water over already drenched ground. Parts of Palenville, Catskill, and Coxsackie typically flood when there are heavy rains locally, and the National Weather Service is warning about the possibility of minor river flooding and isolated flash flooding of roads on Oct. 26. More trees could fall over too, with the drenched ground, so power outages are also possible. Read more about this story in the Times Union.
