Cayuga and Onondaga County sheriffs issue navigation hazard advisories

The Cayuga and Onondaga County sheriffs’ offices both issued a navigation hazard advisory Sunday afternoon, a day after heavy rainfall caused flash flooding around Central New York.

The sheriffs’ offices are warning boaters to “please use extreme caution when navigating as conditions may be hazardous.”

“Due to record rains and the resulting floods the lakes and waterways of Cayuga County are substantially elevated and much debris, often floating below the surface, has been washed into them,” the Cayuga County Sheriff’s Office stated in the release.
