Minor flooding can be found throughout parts of Delaware County Wednesday night.

Tuesday's rainfall caused the Delaware River to exceed its flood stage in places like Walton and Delhi.

The high water forced some small and back roads to close around the county.

This section of Route 18 near Delhi was blocked off earlier Wednesday.

The Department of Emergency Services calls this flooding nothing significant.

Still, some people that live near the river are concerned.

"The farmers around here, they get really impacted, and they, ya know, work very hard and it's very disappointing for them. They start out this way it seems like for the last 3 years, they started out this way."

Delaware County reminds people not to drive through flooded roadways.

Flood warnings continue through Thursday morning on the East Branch of the Delaware at Harvard
