Hurricane Irene to swing by Albany: Mayor Jennings issues Statement


UPDATE 0900 SAT _ IRENE WEAKENS AS IT APPROACHES THE CAPITAL DISTRICT OF NYS:::
Hurricane Irene has weakened after making landfall overnight. There is no question that Irene will have a major impact in terms of torrential rain, flooding, and strong wind gusts on Sunday. Current track guidance continues to strongly suggest a track that would take the system just east of New York City and then into western New England, potentially as far west as up through Litchfield and Berkshire counties.

CBS6 reports ::: A FLOOD WATCH remains in effect for the entire region from this evening through late Sunday night for the likelihood of moderate to severe flooding due to a potential for a widespread 5" to 8" of rain with locally up to 10" where terrain enhancement occurs. This amount of rain will lead to small stream and creek, urban and poor drainage flooding as well as flooding along the major rivers. Big river flooding, however, would likely be delayed until Sunday night into Monday as it will take some time for the runoff to elevate the water levels.
