Flash Flooding hits South Vestal, and Vestal Center 8/14/18
In the morning hours of August fourteenth, flash flooding hit South Vestal and Vestal Center. In monitoring the Choconut creeks level gauge in Choconut, and the degrading weather conditions, Vestal Fire went into emergency operations mode and went into stand by, activating our Emergency Operation center and Division Operation centers and answering numerous calls throughout the morning. Once again that evening we went back into stand by activating the EOC and DOC’s once again as the Choconut creek went above flood stage once again. Thankfully, it wasn’t as serious as the mornings event. Vestal Fire Department wants to thank all our mutual aid brothers and sisters, Vestal Police Department, Vestal Emergency Squad, Vestal Highway Department, and the various other Town of Vestal Departments that showed up to help during this event. We would also like to thank the residents of South Vestal, Vestal Center, and Vestal for their cooperation with us in dealing with this serious situation. The pictures and video provided were taken during the course of our operations ….
