ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - The National Weather Service has lifted flood watches for most of the eastern half of upstate New York after a storm dumped more than two inches of rain across the region.

The weather service says a flood warning remains in effect for the Esopus Creek in the Hudson Valley. Flood watches continued in the northern Adirondacks and northern Vermont.

Flooding was reported Wednesday morning along a stretch of Route 5 in the city of Albany, where the road is also known as Central Avenue. The road has alternating traffic in both directions due to high water on the pavement.

The rain was accompanied by winds gusting to 25 mph.
