Tip: Use j/k to move up and down.
In September, 2011, the town of Owego in southern NY was hit by a huge flood. One weekend a few of us from Cornell drove down to help with the clean up efforts. If my pictures are insufficient, you may be interested in the Cornell Sun article on that weekend or the Cornell Chronicle article about the cleanup the next week.
The flood caused the most damage to basements, which needed to be pumped out. Everything wet needed to be removed, including furniture, drywall, and insulation. Some residents had started this work immediately, but many others needed help to get started or to finish the cleanup. Relief was coordinated by Cynthia Conti-Cook, working out of an empty building downtown. Cynthia and the rest of the gang will probably appreciate any help over the next few weeks. They can be reached via Rebuild Owego.
