The City of Binghamton has been under a State of Emergency since Sept 7th. But with the rains having stopped for the time being, the danger has not passed. In fact residents should be prepared for a long-haul.
As of 2pm on Sept 8th, Downtown Binghamton is being actively evacuated , as well as West State Street, Riverside Drive, and all areas up to 2 blocks from Front Street along the river. This is all for good reason. We have video and photos to follow.

Endicott, NY also was faring badly. The following photos were provided to us by Robert ‘Coty’ Miller and encompass Casterline Ave, S. Liberty Ave, and Merserau Park
