Catastrophic Flooding, Landslides Hit New York

DEVELOPING STORY: A flash flood emergency was declared across parts of New York after nearly a foot of rain fell — causing massive landslides and significant flooding. At least one person was killed and there are reports of a number of people who had to be rescued from their homes and cars.

The Hudson Valley – just north of New York City – was hit especially hard. That’s where the one fatality happened – when a woman tried to escape her flooded home.

“I had to help ambulances get in here, a number of them had to be turned away because of a number of cars that were abandoned or were stuck so unless you are a first responder, don’t come here,” said Steven Neuhaus, Orange County Executive.
