Tropical Storm Lee Floods the Southern Tier
New York's Southern Tier experienced severe flooding in the Summer of 2006, what many considered a 50-year flood. But then came Tropical Storm Lee last September. The rain blew up the mid-Atlantic, then stalled over the region. Flash flooding started with the heavy rains on Wednesday, September 7. But the worst would come over the next two days, as the rain stopped and rivers throughout the Tier overflowed their banks, resulting in devastating flooding and tens of thousands of people displaced from their homes and businesses.
