Do you already
Despite extended forecasts of continuing rain for the week of June 26, it seemed that no one was prepared for just how much rain the county received. By some reports the amount of rain our area saw exceeded those of Hurricane Agnes in 1972, Tropical Storm Ivan in 2004 and the flooding of April, 2005. Some reports said that our area had not seen so much rain since 1902. In just a few days, rainfall totals exceeded what the area normally gets over a three-month span.
With the waters receding from the Summer Flood of 2006, county residents are finally getting a clear view of all of the damage that left no part of the county untouched. EMA coordinator Mark Wood tells the Susquehanna County Transcript that we are now in a full recovery stage. Although the entire county was affected by the flood, Wood’s main focus is on the Great Bend, Hallstead and New Milford area, as well as Susquehanna, Oakland, Lanesboro, Little Meadows and Apolacon Twp.
