GREECE--New York Army National Guard Soldiers deploy the Tiger Dam flood control system along the shores of Braddock Bay in the Town of Greece, N.Y. in response to rising waters on Lake Ontario. The system consists of flexible fabric tubes which are connected and filled with water. The tubes replace sandbags as a flood control mechanism. Since being ordered to assist in flood mitigation duties by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo on May 3, New York Army and Air National Guard members, along with members of the New York Naval Militia, have filled more than 673,500 sand bags.
