Torrential Rains Inundate Scarsdale

BRPFloodThe Bronx River Parkway -- Underwater on Tuesday night September 25.Inundated with five inches of rain on Tuesday September 25, many roads and homes in Scarsdale were flooded, and police and emergency workers were out in full force to help.

At the Village Board meeting on Tuesday night, Director of Public Works Benny Salanitro said the substantial rainfall had caused rivers to breach and extensive flooding especially in Edgewood, around Cayuga Pond, in the South Fox Meadow Brook section and at Cambridge and Greendale Roads near George Field.

He also reported that the fire department had rescued two people who were trapped in their cars near the Hutch. A woman attempted to drive through a big puddle on Brookby Road, got stuck and the car had to be towed. Salanitro said the rain event was one of the top “5 or 10 events” since he has been working in Scarsdaleflood1Scarsdale High School

The rain caused the school system to end classes a few minutes early and to cancel afternoon and evening activities. The parking lot at the high school flooded, submerging a few students cars.

The Bronx River Parkway was completely submerged and closed – with deep water causing it to look more like the Bronx River than a parkway.

The police log shows flooding and road closures at the following locations:

Brite Avenue, Fox Meadow Road, Paddington Road, Greendale Road, Sprague Road, Brookby Road, Saxon Woods Road, Church Lane South, Popham Road, Ogden Road, Sherbrooke Road, Oxford Road and Greendale Road.
