    (NECN/Weather Channel) - People are fleeing the rising Susquehanna River in Pennsylvania and New York.

    The river already broke a flood record in Binghamton, and the river is expected to continue to rise.

    The crest isn't even expected for a couple of hours, which is definitely bad news.

    The flood walls were built in the 1930s, and the integrity of the walls is a concern, especially for low-lying areas in Binghamton, which is why 10,000 people have already been given mandatory evacuation orders.

    Damage looks extensive, according to Weather Channel's Chris Warren, who has more from Binghamton, NY.
