Mohawk Ice Jam May Bring Flooding to Stockade as Temps Rise


There is growing concern in Schenectady's Stockade neighborhood with a huge 17-mile ice jam on the Mohawk River still in place. 

Temperatures Thursday should be near 50 degrees.

According to the National Weather Service we should be fine this week, but officials are still worried about the situation.

The combination of warmer temperatures and more rain may lead to some flooding  in low-lying areas.

The National Weather Service is working with the State Department of Emergency Management to monitor the situation.

Many long-time residents of the Stockade say this is the longest ice jam they've seen in years.
