Ice Jam flooding continues along Housatonic River in Kent, Connecticut

Ice Jam flooding continues along Housatonic River in Kent, Connecticut

This incredible time-lapse footage shows a peaceful frozen river turning into a rushing ice jam in upstate NY.

Flooding began Saturday when a major ice dam in the Housatonic River caused water to flow over the river's edge on the south side of town.

The Hoosic River flooded in the Eagle Bridge and Buskirk areas, closing roads in the area, but the jam blamed for it broke up late Friday and the river dropped below flood stage.

Route 7 has been closed between Route 341 and Bull's Bridge Road because of the flooding.

The Mettawee River jumped its banks in several areas in the village of Granville and Middle Granville, severely flooding the little league field complex in the village. But it appeared the road was damaged in numerous spots.

The Susquehanna River Basin Commission will have people out monitoring for flooding and ice jams today.

A neat little video from the National Weather Service office in Burlington shows how the freezing weather quickly turned the Ausable River in upstate NY into a mess of ice. That is close to the water level on January 4 of 579.45 feet when residents in East China Township reported flooding. The river was scheduled to crest at 1 p.m.at 18 feet.... which is flood level for some low-lying areas.

Parts of N.J. could get a few inches of snow.

East China resident Bill Adragna, who lives on Walnut Drive near a canal, said the flooding was worse Friday than it had been on January 4.

It was shared by the National Weather Service in Burlington, Vermont, with the caption: 'They happen fast!'
