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.
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.
On the left was our Babe Ruth baseball park. On the right is Jumpin' Jack's and Collins Park.
They used to separate the Lake from the Mohawk River.
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
Neighbors helping neighbors is a common trend in the Village of Scotia.
