The people of the Stockade Neighborhood in Schenectady have been advised to get away from that area because flooding from the Mohawk River is immanent. There is a temporary shelter set up for everyone that has evacuated. WTEN has more coverage of this story.

Evacuation of this area is not mandatory, but the City hopes that the people in that area will cooperate. A pretty scary situation for all of those that live in that area. This will be a major flood, so people should be taking this seriously. Here's hoping all are safe.
