After Irene…

The residency of 2011 Wildcat Fellows Ellie Irons and Dan Phiffer ended on July 24th. Hurricane Irene struck Claryville soon after. The Denning, Frost Valley, and Peekamoose roads were flooded, as were homes and businesses in the valley. Town Hall was an island in the boiling stream. Power and phone service were interrupted.  When the flood waters receded, the Neversink Transmissions tower created by Irons and  Phiffer was still standing.

The Denning Road has been largely restored, but the Frost Valley and Peekamoose roads have not. Many home-owners are still struggling to recover.
