BETHLEHEM, N.Y. (NEWS10) – The State of Emergency along the Normans Kill remains in effect for Albany County but not for the city of Albany.

Work to repair the damage by the landslide is still underway, and an investigation into what caused the landslide continues. The costs for the repairs continue to increase.

Albany Mayor Kathy Sheehan said the city responded quickly and devoted the necessary resources to make sure no lives were lost and there was no significant damage to property from flooding.

“That’s all good news, and the reason for that is because we reacted quickly and an emergency was declared,” she said. “We got in there and took care of the danger that would have been associated with the flooding, and now it’s time to move on and find a permanent solution.”

Sheehan said it has yet to be determined how much the repairs will cost and who will pay for the repairs.
