The 100 year flood
As I compose this post, the Schroon River is over its' banks. The USGS gage reading is 10.52 feet (third highest in history). Not since 1913 has the river seen this amount of water. Heavy damage to the area down stream in the Warrensburg area is certain. The fishing has been pushed back a month at best. What this will do to the rivers geographic features and the fauna is unknow but change is definate.
