Rainfall was heavy at times in many areas of the mid-Hudson throughout the afternoon. Authorities were advising motorists to be watchful for torrential rains that could make travel hazardous and to be mindful of high water and ponding on roadways.
State police were handling a multivehicle crash that occurred shortly before 5 p.m. on Route 17 near Exit 124, in Goshen. Police said the heavy rains, which reduced visibility and made the road slippery, were a factor in that crash.
That National Weather Service said areas that could experience flooding include Goshen, Chester, Florida, Mechanicstown, Washingtonville, Westtown, Maybrook, Slate Hill, Pine Island and New Hampton.
A flood advisory means river or stream flows are elevated, or
ponding of water in urban or other areas is occurring or is imminent.
