USGS measuring station in Cortland

The depth of the Tioughnioga River as measured by the US Geologic Service at Elm Street in Cortland measured at under 4 feet as of 5 am Friday.

The National Weather Service forecast shows the Tioughnioga could be at nearly 8 feet by Saturday morning, just under the minor flood stage for that part of the river.

Minor flood stage typically results in minimal or no property damage, according to the weather service post.

The Otselic River in Cincinnatus measured under 3 feet deep at 7 am Friday, and is projected to peak at 5 feet in Cincinnatus by 8 pm Friday night, showing how fast this can change.

That’s still about 4 feet below minor flood stage at Cincinnatus.
