The water rose again in Livingston Manor on October 30.

Manor floods again

LIVINGSTON MANOR, NY — Water pushed through the streets of Livingston Manor once again in the wee hours of October 30 as torrents of rain swelled the rivers and creeks in the area, and flood waters quickly rose to about 30 inches on Main Street.

In the morning, people in buildings and on the streets were cleaning up. Sally Wright, the executive director of the Catskill Art Society, was pushing a mop in the exhibition space, as the flood waters deposited a layer of mud on the floors of the building.

Lisa Lyons, proprietor of Morgan Outdoors said she was luckier than she has been in past encounters with floodwaters in Manor. This time the water rose up a couple of steps at her front door, but not onto the store floor itself.

Across the street at the offices of Catskill Mountainkeeper, staff had piled all of the office furniture outside on the street as they dealt with the aftermath of the flooding.
