CBS 6 is reporting that an immediate voluntary evacuation order has been given out for certain parts of the city of Troy near the Hudson river due to the river rising.

As of 8am this morning certain parts of Troy have been given an evacuation order.  It's not mandatory, but Troy Police are hoping that most people abide by that order.  The neighborhoods by Ferry St to the Troy Menands Bridge; the river front to 5th ave; 112th st to 126; the riverfront to 4th street, all these areas have been given the voluntary order to evacuate.

The National Weather Service estimates that the Hudson River could crest at 25.4 feet today.  A lot of these areas have already seen minor flooding, with more on the way.

Shelters are set up Lansingburgh and Troy High schools, but no pets allowed.  You can bring your pets to the Hudson Mohawk Humane Society.
