Steady rain, mixed with snow run-off, has led to some flooding problems in portions of the area, including in the city of Ithaca.
Fire, police, and DPW crews were working, as of 8:30 a.m., to break up an ice jam in the Cascadilla Creek.
That’s caused some flooding and puddling issues in portions of the city, specifically in the Fall Creek neighborhood.
It also caused problems for TCAT riders who use Route 17. That route was unable to make stops along Lincoln and Dey streets because of flooding.
Ithaca Police warned drivers Monday morning to avoid areas of Lincoln Avenue, Dey Street, Willow Avenue, and Franklin Street.
Reports started filtering in just after 7 a.m. of heavy snow falling throughout the area as well, from Trumansburg all the way to Lansing.
Temperatures dropped by as much as 15 degrees in some parts of the area over a 2-hour period early Monday morning.
If you see flooding problems throughout the area, send a message to News Director Greg Fry at firstname.lastname@example.org.
