On a personal note, my father's family owned a camp on the Schoharie River. I recall visiting it when I was a young boy. It flooded many times, but typically during the spring runoff.
My parents who live in Fulton County roughly 100 km north of this area report downed trees, including four poplars, one of which fell on the neighbors truck. My mother tells me that it was certainly as "bad as advertised."
