Two Missing After Storms Bring Flooding to The Northeast

June 29, 2013

By The Associated Press


FORT PLAIN, N.Y. - Two people are missing after heavy rains inundated the northeast and led to severe flooding in some areas.

Officials say a woman in upstate New York`s Mohawk Valley is unaccounted for after her mobile home was washed away by rising waters Friday in Fort Plain. A number of other nearby communities also experienced flash flood

Heavy rains Thursday and Friday caused the Mohawk River and other waterways to overflow. At Little Falls, the river reached more than 3 feet above flood stage late Friday morning before receding, the National Weather Service said.

Authorities in central Pennsylvania say an 86-year-old man was swept into a rain-swollen creek Thursday while trying to retrieve an ATV. State police in Clinton County have not released the Beech Creek Township man`s name.
