Guard rescues 21 at flooded New York state motel
The U.S. National Guard rescued 21 people trapped at a Catskill Mountains motel and campground in New York, following flooding triggered by Hurricane Irene, authorities said. Residents of Moore's Motel and Resort in the small Catskills community of Prattsville, N.Y., became stranded after fast-moving water flooded much of surrounding Greene County, blowing out bridges and roadways. There were no reports of deaths or injuries at the motel, which has an adjoining campground and trailer park. But the deep water made it difficult for rescuers to reach the property, said Shaun Groden, Greene County administrator.
