Andy Finnigan assesses damage from ice jams.

Tuesday’s heavy rains and warmer weather is causing havoc with the low lying areas along the Neversink River in Cuddebackville, N.Y.

Massive ice jams have flooded out the Guymard Turnpike and Route 209 area, destroying personal property and flooding homes.

Kristina Finnigan, who owns the Oakland Valley Campgrounds with her husband, Andrew, said the force of the ice jams caused devastation in its wake.

“As the ice came across the land, it kept pushing and pushing and pushing, it raked the land,” she said. “It took up the top soil. It took up the road; the road bed is gone. It ripped up the water lines. It pulled down trees; it brought trees in from upriver, which knocked down other trees. It crushed picnic tables.”
