Floods devastate upstate NY, northeastern PA
As widely reported by the media, massive floods have devastated upstate New York and northeastern Pennsylvania, where many parishes of the Orthodox Church in America are located. In addition to parishes in Binghamton, NY and along the NY-PA border, OCA parishes dot “the Valley,” from Uniondale, Dundaff, and Simpson in the north to Hazleton and McAdoo in the south. The region traditionally has had one of the largest concentrations of Orthodox Christian parishes in the US.
The region has been declared a disaster zone.
