This series of photographs shows the damage to Route 30 near Blenheim and North Blenheim caused by Hurricane Irene. On August 27, 2011, the Old Blenheim Bridge opened in 1855 collapsed and washed away due to flooding from Hurricane Irene. There is a roadside waterfall along Route 30 named Creamery Falls. In the past I have visted and have taken photographs of this particular waterfall. However those photos were taken in better weather and better times. There is a comparsion below of the strength of this waterfall.
Old Blenheim Bridge was a wooden covered bridge that spanned Schoharie Creek in North Blenheim, New York, United States. With an open span of 210 feet (64 m), it had the second-longest span of any surviving single-span covered bridge in the world. The bridge, opened in 1855, was also one of the oldest of its type in the United States. It was destroyed by flooding resulting from Tropical Storm Irene in 2011.
