Images taken on September 14, 2001, about a week after the historic flood which destroyed much of the agricultural sector of southern New York state, and took out two major cities, namely, Owego and Binghamton. As of the time of this writing (mid-November), many households still must be counted as evacuees, their residencies being either damaged, or complete losses. Note image 28 as an indication on the velocity and level of flooding in Owego. The city is still in rebuilding mode. FEMA and other, local, agencies are assisting with grant programs, heavy machinery, soup kitchens and temporary shelter.
First 4 images taken with iPhone 4, all others Sony A900.
