CAYUGA FLOODED: Roads, basements swell as heavy rain falls (full-coverage)

Cayuga County was hammered with flooding rain on Saturday, along with the powerful storms that moved through the area. Combined with the rainfall that has been prevalent over the region in the last few days — it made for challenging circumstances.

Auburn, Owasco and Moravia were the hardest hit communities, according to initial reports out of Cayuga County.

More than 800 were without power in Owasco, with more than 2,000 being without power county-wide.

Even some mudslides were reported in Moravia, as well as street flooding, which made some roadways in Auburn nearly impassable.

First responders were out in force throughout the county contending with those flooded roadways, as well as flooded basements and even some accidents that happened as the other issues were developing in Cayuga County. Trees were also reported down in some locations. However, it’s unclear if the downed trees were result of high winds, or just the result of heavy rains softening ground.
