Hurricane Irene Relief Efforts in Prattsville NY Area, 2011

Prattsville, NY, sits along the Schoharie Creek and its Main Street was particularly devastated after 12 inches of rain from Hurricane Irene created raging floodwaters. Cleanup was underway on Labor Day, Sept. 5; the UM church and parsonage had been mostly gutted by the end of the day.
