SCHENECTADY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Early reports show flood waters entering the Stockade district in Schenectady from the Mohawk River.

The warm weather of the last few days has now led to ice jams on the Mohawk River as the water has turned into frozen dams with the recent cold snap.

An overflow has been the result, as various roads in the Stockade district have turned into dead ends with the onset of flood waters.

The area is prone to flooding because it is low-lying and next to the Mohawk River. Conditions are now dangerous, as the water has begun to ice over.

The flooding is concentrated to Ingersoll Ave, North Ferry Street and Washington Avenue.

No one in the neighborhood has yet to be evacuated.

NEWS10 ABC will continue to provide the latest updates on the area.
