UTICA, N.Y. – County Executive Anthony Picente joined other local officials Friday to provide an update on the work being done in the county to address the damage caused by floods.

While the rain has stopped, Picente is asking the public not to travel as crews work to clean up the debris.

“For Oneida county the good news is there were no injuries, nothing in any of those areas where rescues took place that anyone was injured or got in harm’s way in that regard and to that the credit goes to the first responders that took them out of there," said Picente.

Several roadways are still closed as crews work to control flooding and clear debris from the affected areas.
