Flooding shuts down Thruway

WHEATLAND (AP) -- Flooding caused by heavy rains has shut down a 16-mile stretch of the eastbound lanes of the Thruway outside Rochester.

The Thruway Authority says the eastbound side of Interstate 90 was closed around 9 a.m. today by flooding between Exit 47 in Le Roy and Exit 46 in Henrietta, just south of Rochester.

Troopers say the water is 4 inches deep and covers about 15 feet of both eastbound lanes.

Officials say all eastbound traffic must leave the highway at Exit 47. There was no immediate indication from the authority or state police when the eastbound lanes would reopen.

Heavy rains hit the region early this morning. The National Weather Service has announced a flash flood warning for parts of Monroe, Ontario and Livingston counties, through 12:45 p.m. Monday.

Biker dies after falling from ramp

ALBANY (AP) -- Police say a 36-year-old man has died after he crashed his motorcycle on an elevated ramp in Albany and fell 30 feet to the street below.

Authorities say officers responded around 3 a.m. Sunday to a report of an unconscious person near the Quay Street ramp leading to Broadway. The officers then found the man's motorcycle on the ramp above.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say it appears the man was riding the wrong way on the ramp when he lost control of his motorcycle and was ejected off of the ramp onto the street below.

The man's name is being withheld pending family notifications.
