HUDSON VALLEY, N.Y. (AP) — Heavy rains unleashed intense flooding in New York’s Hudson Valley region, killing at least one person, inundating highways and forcing road closures Sunday night.

The US National Weather Service has issued flash flood warnings for parts of southeastern New York, calling it “life threatening.”

One person died from the flooding, Orange County executive Steven M. Neuhaus told The New York Times.

State Highway 9W was flooded and the Palisades Interstate Highway was so inundated that some sections had to be closed, the New York State Police said in a statement. The police called on the population to avoid that road.

Cedar Pond Brook in Stony Point overflowed onto the road and private property, according to WABC.

Rockland County Executive Ed Day urged residents to “remain indoors in a safe location until the heavy rainfall has stopped.
