Scotia Experiences Tropical Storm Irene
Hundreds of curiosity seekers arrived in Scotia to measure the river flooding at our well known Jumpin' Jack's Drive-In.
Historic Flooding

While this kind of flooding is something we normally only see on TV the rain and wind from Tropical Storm Irene reached in to make its mark on the Village of Scotia.

This week we experienced historic flooding which resulted in the Mohawk River level reaching across Collins Park into our recently cleaned lake.

They used to separate the Lake from the Mohawk River.
Damage on Sunnyside Rd Meanwhile, many residents spent their day cleaning up from the wind damage. This house was one of many on Sunnyside Rd. which suffered storm damage and lose of power.  As of this post down the street at BillP Studios, updates toVisitScotia.com are possible thanks to the loan of  a gas powered generator.
Neighbors helping neighbors is a common trend in the Village of Scotia.
