"When is a Road Not a Road? During major flooding in Garrison, NY. #irene

Answer: After a torrential deluge from a deteriorating hurricane. Here’s the scene half a mile from my home, along Philipse Brook Road in Garrison, N.Y. The damage here and elsewhere around the Hudson Valley is very similar to what occurred in 1999 after the passage of the remains of Hurricane Floyd. While the situation near us is mainly an inconvenience, there are prospect of severe and dangerous flooding elsewhere. In the Catskills residents are nervously tracking flows at the aging Gilboa dam (Gilboa was visited by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo on Friday ). Another danger zone is Vermont , where steep-sloped valleys concentrate rainfall quickly. For a refresher, revisit the archival footage chronicling the impact of the great flood of 1927 that swept that state after a late-season tropical storm paid a November visit.
