Flooding on the Schoharie Creek at Burtonsville, NY.

Here are some photos my daughter took of the Schoharie Creek at Burtonsville in Montgomery County. These were taken yesterday, June 28, 2006, around 5:30p.m. The creek was discharging 30,000 cubic feet of water per second when these pictures were taken. Four days earlier on June 25, the creek at Burtonsville was only discharging 400 cubic feet per second.

Read about Judah Burton, major in the Revolutionary War and founder of Burtonsville. You can also see a photograph of his house, which is still in existence.
