Search for missing after New York floods

New York, USA
June 20, 2007

ROSCOE, N.Y. — At least two people were missing after flash floods in the southern edge of the Catskill Mountains.
Six to eight inches of rain fell in two hours late Tuesday night, sending flood waters surging and washing out roads. Roscoe's fire chief Steve Chesney told the Times Herald-Record of Middletown that several houses "were pushed around" by floodwaters. The downpour came as a series of storms tore through New York state on Tuesday, killing at least one person and leaving more than 3,000 electricity customers still without power Wednesday.
