August 15, 2018 06:25 AM

Many families are homeless tonight after overnight floods ravaged several Upstate New York communities, Seneca County in particular.

“Our home is gone, our car is gone, the new boat we bought last week is gone,” said Karen Mott, a Lodi flood victim. “But we have each other and we have our dogs.”

Mott says her entire home was destroyed and she escaped with only the clothes on her back and a few small items she managed to grab on the way out.

“I wouldn't wish this on my worse enemy,” said Mott.

The major damage resulted in authorities locking down many areas under curfew.

The curfew will remain in place in flooded areas until 7 a.m. Wednesday.
