Storm damage closes park areas in Central NY

ITHACA, N.Y. (AP) - Sections of several state parks in central New York are closed for the season because of damage caused by last week's heavy rains and flooding.

The regional director for state parks in the Finger Lakes tells the Ithaca Journal that most of the damage occurred in the area near Robert H. Treman State Park in Ithaca. About 5 inches of rain fell there last Thursday and Friday, causing hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage to a road through the park, a swimming area and a trail.

Officials say the swimming area will be closed for the rest of the summer. Crews are clearing mud and debris from the trail.

The nearby Buttermilk Falls and Taughannock Falls state parks were damaged to a lesser extent.
