National Guard helps affected Greene Co. residents evacuate

The National Guard helped Greene County residents get to safety Monday.

In Scuffleton, residents were packing up as waters were rising, and many had plans to leave or had left already.

As homes become submerged under water, Greene County officials say staying could put your life in danger.

Yeah I understand that,” said Ricky Yannarella of Greene County. “But my wife definitely won’t leave the animals,that’s for sure. She’s not going anywhere.”

Yannarella helped others across flooded areas evacuate, and he said if it comes down to it they have a boat for emergencies.
