MECHANICVILLE, New York — Heavy rain caused local flooding in the Albany area and one small Hudson River city declared a state of emergency.

Mechanicville in Saratoga County declared the emergency Wednesday night after a one-two punch of roughly three inches of rain and a water main break. Drivers are asked to avoid city roads until 10 a.m. Thursday and residents are being advised to boil their water.

A line of thunderstorms caused local flooding and road closures over a wide swath of eastern New York.
