Photos of Irene flooding in Troy

troy irene flooding

The Hudson was very wide today.

Downtown Troy was among the many local spots to get hit with flooding from all the Irene rain. The Hudson hit major flood stage there today -- running up against the backs of buildings, consuming parks, turning parking lots into beaches, and stranding boats. All the while odd and random things floated by.

It was a sight.

Here are a bunch of photos.

Scroll up for large format photos.

This photo is not from Troy -- it's from along Route 2 in Cropseyville. It was sent along by Deb. (Thanks, Deb.)

Could you tell if water had gotten into Dino BBQ? That would be a real shame, with all the remodeling they did.

Wow those are crazy pictures!

I believe on the backside of Browns Brewing there's a mark for the high water mark of the river... I'm curious if they exceeded it.

HOLY SH*T!!! is the only appropriate thing to say at this point.

BTW, because of a runaway barge with a 30 foot crane on it (!) the Twin Bridges closed around 2:30pm (and most likely the one on route 9 too). The traffic is (was?), from what I hear, a nightmare on I87 going south back to Albany. Seems the barge was stopped and the bridge re-opened but it might still be hard to get back because of the congestion. If you are going leaving work, use Exit 9 at Clifton Park then aim for Route 4. I mapped the route a coworker and myself took: http://bit.ly/onbYTK

Check the stream of mud under the Cohoes bridges, it's scary.

But much more important: Jumpin Jack is flooded. Ugh.

Jessica from what it looks there is going to be lots of water damage to the inside the water almost came up to the side of the road next to it. This is as of 9 on monday so it could have been a lot worse too! :(

Wow- these photos are amazing

Water was definitely in dinosaur BBQ.

Yesterday my boyfriend and I walked down the stairs in Monument Sq and there's a high water mark there. When I checked back this afternoon in the same spot (you could still walk down the stairs part way at that point) the water was over the old high water mark.

Check it out from the air! This Flickr set from PhotosFromOnHigh is amazing - I was hoping he'd go up today, and I wasn't disappointed. Don't miss Cohoes Falls on the 5th page of pics.

I've seen a steady increase in cycling trips along Madison Ave. after the road diet. I've been one of those riders, too. It's made summertime trips from my house to the Point on Madison that much faster than walking, and there's really no need to drive that short distance - thereby saving a spot for another patron. I've not only enjoyed the F out of the trip, but burned a few calories, too, which considering my diet, is much needed. I'm very very pleased with this effort and thank CDTA, CDPHP and CDTC for their efforts in making this happen. I'm resolving to make MORE trips in 2019!
