Lake Champlain shores up against floods--again

Listen to this story
Lake Champlain rose again this week, thanks to 20 to30 mile-an-hour winds Monday that pushed water back onto some roads and waterfront.

The damages are still mounting. After weeks of high water, the lake remains at flood stage, threatening roads, homes, wells and septic systems.

Clinton County Emergency Services Director Eric Day yesterday called this the "slowest natural disaster ever experienced" in the county.

Day predicts it'll take many weeks of effort to bring hard-hit areas back to normal, and said some of the shoreline may always look more like an ocean coastline than serene lakeshore.

Nora Flaherty talked with Day late yesterday.
