Ithaca (WENY) - Ithaca's Ice Jam is finally starting to break up. This is relief for neighbors suffering from the rising waters. A press release from the City of Ithaca says the efforts to clear the ice jam are working. Crews worked over the weekend to clear the chunks out of the way. Waters have receded from the areas near Cascadilla Creek and most streets are now open. Officials warn to keep sand bags ready in case of future flooding and ice jams. The parking garages will remain open for those affected by flooding through 8 A.M. Monday.
