Cortland County may have faced the brunt of the flooding, but Tompkins County isn’t out of the water.
Director of Emergency Response Lee Shurtleff says larger bodies of water should be able to handle the rainfall, but low lying areas, creeks and ditches pose a threat for flooding.
Shurtleff says the highway department knows where problems areas are and continue to evaluate them.
He says workers are moving debris away from culverts and ditches so they can maintain flow.
“The National Weather Service is advising us that there could be periods of heavy rain over the next couple of days, which could put us back into the same situation,” Shurtleff said.
Portions of roadways in Caroline and Dryden experienced minor flooding Monday due to the persistent heavy rainfall.
