Herkimer flooding

Governor Cuomo's Press Office

Governor Cuomo plans to follow up with the White House after he’s heard nothing about a request he made for federal disaster assistance to aid the Mohawk Valley.  Torrential downpours in late June caused extensive flooding.  Cuomo returned over the weekend to reassess conditions following the on-going recovery efforts.

Food, water, and home clean up kits are being handed out to flood victims in Oneida county and the Mohawk Valley.   The Salvation Army is helping Central New York families to stabilize and even rebuild after the floods. 


When I spoke to Incident Commander Major James Purvis, he was en-route to Oneida with over one thousand meals.

Herkimer County

Heavy rains in Central New York tore through Herkimer County last night in what is being called the worst flooding of the decade.
