COXSACKIE, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Loose branches, downed wires, and uprooted trees were scattered across Coxsackie after Wednesday’s storm. The State of Emergency in Coxsackie was lifted Thursday evening. However, the cleanup efforts continue. Neighbors and crews spent their Thursday cleaning up the mess.
“We estimated about 100 large trees that were taken down in the village. We had a lot of calls for the fire department and really sections of the village were completely shut off. It was difficult for anyone to get around,” said Coxsackie Mayor Mark Evans.
‘It was raining inside my house — I got nervous,” says Coxsackie resident Denise Warren. “When I got here, it was like a war-zone,” says Denise’s neighbor Mike Pollard.
