It was Mongtomery County's turn to take the brunt of thunderstorms and heavy rains Thursday night.

That heavy rain led to flooding which has led to a state of emergency being declared in the county.  Officials are advising against any uncessesary travel on the Thruway between Exits 28 and 29.  That stretch has been reopened after being closed for a time late last night due to flooding.
