The Mohawk has been below flood stage since about 2:30 am today, February 22, and was at 217.17’ at 11:45 am. Things are looking better today, with the constant caveat that the ice cover could breakup and ice jams/dams cause surges of water. The photos below show how much less water is covering various spots that were completely flooded yesterday. If important changes take place today, I will update this posting. (midnight update: the reading at 11:35 pm was 215.35 ft.
