Last Flood House Demolished

By Eugenia Moskowitz
Last Monday, a house was demolished on East Main Street, just across from the Sunoco gas station. According to the Washingtonville Police Department, it had been damaged from the flood resulting from Hurricane Irene in 2011, and has since been uninhabited.
A string of similar houses along West Main Street across from the middle school and high school were demolished last fall. Since nothing new can be built in a flood zone, it remains to be seen what will happen with the land.
