not quite a flood at Riverside Park


At 10:30 AM on Friday (Jan. 25), the Mohawk River had risen to the top of the Overlook flood gauge at N. Ferry Street, see photo above. The Hydro Chart from the National Weather Service continues to predict the River topping off at Freeman’s Bridge about 218 ft., which is about 222 ft at N. Ferry Overlook. However, there may be an ice jam at Freeman’s Bridge, so it is a good thing to stay alert, if you live in the flood-prone area.

  • Evening Update (Jan. 25, 9 PM): According to the Gazette, and the NWS Hydro Chart, the River is no longer rising and is expected to recede overnight. Of course, with ice jamming in spots, some flooding continues to be a threat, even if a small one.
