Flooding reports around Ithaca

Notes:

Minor flooding occurred in many locations around central New York and northeast Pennsylvania, along with isolated, more significant flooding. One location that had significant flooding was Ithaca, NY. This slide shows some of the reports around Ithaca.

In most areas, the strong winds associated with this event were more significant than the flooding. Many locations reported tree damage and power outages. Peak winds on area METARs were generally between 35 and 40 kts, however saturated ground combined with the long duration of the event to produce plenty of damage.
