Homes were inundated. Cars, campers, and boats were swept away. Flash flooding damaged many roads and bridges.  Just over 7 inches of rain fell in Pulaski during a four-hour period on August 14.  A 14-county State of Emergency was declared.  The Phish festival, scheduled at Watkins Glen for the August 17 - 19 weekend was cancelled due to a lack of fresh water for the 30,000 expected attendees.  Rainfall for the month here in Syracuse was 2.96 inches, a little less than usual.  Temperatures for the month averaged 72.6 degrees, close to 3 degrees warmer than normal.  Readings ranged from 92 to 53 degrees.  Smoke from western wildfires covered the skies of Central New York late in August.  There was a peak wind gust of 51 mph reported on August 6.
