OWEGO, NY (WENY) -- Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and Senator Chuck Schumer announced more than $1.2 million dollars will go towards a flood mitigation plan.
     That money will go directly towards raising 27 homes off the ground and out of harms way of the next flood. The homes are in the village's flood zone and were damaged by rising water in 2006 and 2011.
     A time line for construction hasn't been set up yet.
