Massive Flooding Happening Now...Upstate NY and Northern PA
Sorry guys, I meant to post updates throughout the day, but it's been crazy here today. Anyway, Upstate NY in the Southern Tier and the Northern PA area are getting slammed right now with some very heavy rain. Going to post some links to local news stories and try to keep you guys updated:

I don't believe in putting a political label on myself, but if I had to, I'd be a liberal-libertarian. Want to honestly know what that means? Ask me sometime.

Rainbows are more then a reminder of a promise made by a god, or the symbol of a movement; they are a reminder that despite the dark clouds you see, somewhere nearby the sun is shinning.

Local radar from NOAA. Expected flood totals to come. Just heard part of Binghamton is now being evacuated. Water is supposed to come over the flood wall tomorrow morning.

Looks like 'til at least tomorrow night with the heavier stuff, then just on and off rain through the weekend. Of course, that depends on what course Katia decides to take, though right now, it looks like it won't affect us.

And thanks. Those of us on the hillsides are okay for now. Most of the low laying areas are being evacuated though. Latest number is about 10,000. Doesn't sound like much, but when you have around 200,000 people total in all the surrounding area, suddenly that becomes a sizable minority, especially for an area that doesn't normally get hit this hard.

My mother lives in South Wilkes-Barre, Pa. The dikes will hold 41 ft and they are saying a crest of 38.5, but I think they are way off. Back in 72 when Agnes hit we had water in the second floor. Friend of mine works for the city and says they may evacuate in the morning. So far 50,000 mandatory evacuations.The more rain they get in New York the higher the Susquehanna will go

Yeah, I'm getting the feeling that they're not telling us something. They keep saying this may be worse than '06, but than keep giving us flood reports that are at least a foot lower than back then. Something is not right...

The one I do trust them on is the Susquehanna at Vestal, which they say may crest around 34 feet.

Good morning everyone. Rain has stopped temporarily, though we have another batch moving in from the south in about an hour or so. The water is now less than a foot from breaching the flood wall in the city of Binghamton. An updated forecast states that the Susquehanna in Owego will reach 32-34 feet, and at Vestal it's still going to be around 34 feet.

Most of the low laying areas are evaced. Apparently, the shelters in the area right are packed, including Binghamton University's Events Center. Will post more as I hear it.

I'm not trying to convince you that you should like what Larry Flynt does. I don't like what he does. But what I do like is... that I live in a country... where you and I can make that decision for ourselves. I like that I live in a country where I can pick up Hustler magazine... read it if I want... or throw it in the trash, if that's where I think it belongs. Or better yet I can express my opinion by not buying it. I like that right. I care about it. And you should care about it, too... because we live in a free country. We say that a lot, but sometimes we forget what that means, so listen again. We live in a free country. That is a powerful idea. That's a magnificent way to live. But there is a price for that freedom, which is that sometimes... we have to tolerate things that we don't necessarily like. So go back in that room... where you are free to think whatever you want to think... about Larry Flynt and Hustler magazine. But then ask yourselves if you want to make that decision for the rest of us... because the freedom that everyone in this room enjoys... is, in a very real way, in your hands. If we start throwing up walls against what some of us think is obscene... we may wake up one morning and realize... that walls have been thrown upin places we never expected... and we can't see anythingor... do anything.

Pretty much the same situation here. Owego has one road leading in and out of it right now, unless you cut up to Syracuse and cut down I90 (a trip of about 3 hours in total).
Town of Maine is basically an island, with Rt. 26 and 38B washed out and 17c from the Town of Union to Glenn Aubry being flooded, etc.

So go back in that room... where you are free to think whatever you want to think... about Larry Flynt and Hustler magazine. But then ask yourselves if you want to make that decision for the rest of us... because the freedom that everyone in this room enjoys... is, in a very real way, in your hands. If we start throwing up walls against what some of us think is obscene... we may wake up one morning and realize... that walls have been thrown upin places we never expected... and we can't see anythingor... do anything. And that's not freedom. That is not freedom. So, be careful. Thank you."
