Many area streams and creeks are running into the Hudson River after all the recent rain we’ve had.

NewsChannel 13’s Rachel Tiede was in Waterford to see how the surrounding area was affected.

A measurement of 34 feet is considered minor flooding in Waterford. The river is expected to be at the action stage into the next couple of days.

The good news – it will be just below flood level as both the tide comes up, and the runoff continues.
