Mother Nature hasn't been kind to our area this summer. After recent devastation in the Mohawk Valley and Central New York, more showers and thunderstorms are on the way, placing our area under a Flash Flood Watch from 11am until tonight. There is also a Flood Warning for the Mohawk River at Utica until further notice. Several roads are already closed due to the overnight rain.
