Irene leaves her mark

See that off-white line about halfway up the brick wall? That's how high the Irene flood waters came on Main Street in the Schoharie County village of Middleburgh.

Photographer Christopher Auger-Dominguez took this photo while shooting on location for a series we're working on at the Watershed Post: Faces of the Flood. We're gathering personal stories from the Irene and Lee floods and their aftermath from people across the Catskills region. Chris, a prodigiously talented portrait photographer who splits his time between Manhattan and Franklin, is taking portraits of the people we're profiling.

If you know someone with an incredible flood story, and you'd like us to consider them for the series, please email us at (We know each and every person who was here on August 28, 2011 has a story to tell.)
