We reported yesterday that we could see a hurricane hit a cold front and merge with a Nor'easter thus producing a snowy hurricane. Good news - doesn't look like we'll be getting any snow. Bad news - it looks like we could see a great deal of rain and wind. We have the updated details and with Irene fresh on our minds, we're not looking forward to this storm.
It's so unbelievable to see video like this. The entire Collins Park in Scotia as well as Jumpin' Jacks is underwater after the Mohawk River flooded from Hurricane Irene. Yes this is a 500 year flood. Watch the video.
Hurricane Irene blasted the East Coast, although rare it may not be the last one this year that could affect New York State. Peak hurricane season happens in September and there are several tropical depressions that are forming now. What name hurricane could we be talking about next?
Yes, you read that right. I was rather perplexed when I heard that this morning too. Basic instincts would to be to imagine higher gas prices after a natural disaster. But they say no. Gas is priced to supply and demand.
We just received word that Schenectady and the Town of Niskayuna are advising residents who are in low lying areas from Lock 7 to the Albany County line to evacuate immediately due to a possibility that Lock 7 may fail.
Now that ol' Monte is back up with power and internet, I thought I'd share a few photos from my home town of Philmont, NY way down in Columbia County. While I was up here with you in the Capital Region, my mom took these photos before the town was under a voluntary evacuation yesterday due to Hurricane Irene.
We will be collecting money for the American Red Cross of Northeastern New York to support relief efforts for the Albany area residents affected by Hurricane Irene. On Monday, August 29th (tomorrow) WGNA, Q103, 105.7 Crush FM and 104.5 The Team will be at the Crossgates Mall overflow parking lot (across from JC Penny and Old Navy entrance) from 6am to 10am.
