Jun 30, 2023 1:03 am

WNYT reports that a state of emergency because of flooding was issued in New Lebanon, in Columbia County, after a beaver dam in Massachusetts broke. The beaver dam broke in the Pittsfield State Forest in Berkshire County June 28, sending much water into a nearby pond. That pond then overflowed, sending water down the mountain into New Lebanon. Residents reported one to three feet of water in their basements, with mud and debris on Main Street. The New York State Department of Transportation was on the scene. New Lebanon's website announced, "a State of Emergency and a Local Emergency Order for the Town of New Lebanon due to emergency conditions produced by flooding that occurred in the vicinity of Main Street in the Town of New Lebanon."
