Flooding from the Mohawk River is still a threat in Schenectady and now southern Saratoga County.

Clifton Park is warning residents about some parklands now underwater. For a time it had come up onto some roadways, closing them. The water has since receded.

This all stems from a 17-mile ice jam near the Twin Bridges. The National Weather Service says some of that ice moved Wednesday night, causing the water to fluctuate.

Officials in Clifton Park and Saratoga County are keeping a close eye on everything.

As of Thursday afternoon, no homes had been affected.

If you're driving and come across flooded water, remember – "Turn around, don't drown."
