We have a flood in epic proportions, unreal. Binghamton, NY down in the valley has evac'ed 20,000 people and a 75 year old flood wall is spilling over.

Holy **** dude. That really sucks. Hopefully things aren't going too bad for you. Are you being directly affected by the damage?

I forgot about Lee. Didn't think it'd make it up that far considering it was only a TD when it hit the Gulf.

Just happening/ongoing because the rivers haven't crested. This is from Lee. It opened an "alley" that sucked moisture in from the ocean and dumped 9-14 inches of rain onto us before we dried out from Irene.
