Water from rain and spring snowmelt blocked some roads, but flooding throughout Essex County did not lead to any major damage, according to county Emergency Services Director Don Jaquish.

The East and West branches of the AuSable River spilled over its banks in places, and the Saranac River was also running high.

Moose Pond Lane in Bloomingdale was impassable this morning, which meant Sharon Elrod had to work from home today.

"This is the worst flooding on this road since we've lived here, which is 10 years!" Elrod wrote in an email.

Jay Mountain Road in Jay was closed from the bridge to the end of the road, according to Essex County's website.

Styles Brook Road in Keene was closed from Keene to Upper Jay, as of Monday.

Also in Keene, Irish Hill Lane was open but with very narrow passage.

Those who might follow Bonnie View Road north from Wilmington's four corners will find it closed from the Clinton County line to Black Brook.
