A flood warning is in effect in Schenectady along the Mohawk River as water levels rise.

In less than 24 hours, the National Weather Service says the water level has increased more than 10 feet. Right now the water level is at 222 feet above sea level. The national weather service labels that as the moderate flood stage.

The water level has been rising due to large chucks of ice backing up on the river, and has begun flowing over the river. Residents and city officials say they'll continue to keep an eye on the river as flood levels continue to elevate.
