On Tuesday night, a flash flood swept an 8-foot wall of water down the Beaverkill north of Roscoe, New York, claiming the life of at least two people and destroying several houses. Three very dramatic videos on the Times Herald-Record Web site show the damage and the rain-swollen Beaverkill shortly after the flood.
“Route 206, a two-lane road that was completely washed out in some areas and in other places had its shoulders eroded to sheer cliffs, is expected to be closed for at least another week, the police said.” Nate Schwebber in The New York Times.
As we’ve noted before, area residents are searching for any and all solutions to the problems of flooding on the Beaverkill and its tributaries.
