From Columbia County Sheriff's Office:
LANDSLIDE IN THE TOWN OF GREENPORT
Columbia County Emergency Management held a meeting this morning with multiple agencies and formulated a plan for the embankment collapse. A private contractor was hired with the expertise in dealing with landslides.
Work began this morning and the public should avoid this area as it is an active construction zone. There are no hazards for any residents that live downstream from Bridge Street and the water is flowing as outlined in our work plan with NYS DEC.
We will provide an update on Monday, November 20, 2017.
