Most of this rain has fallen in less than 90 minutes, promoting flash flooding in our region.

The current areas under a flash flood warning include Southern Oneida and southern Herkimer Counties. This flash flood warning expires at 11pm.

Widespread flooding has been reported. The hardest hit areas so far include Utica and the surrounding areas. Several roads are impassable due to high flood waters. Please be careful if you are heading home tonight.
