Aug 30, 2011 — Clean-up efforts area already underway in parts of the North Country slammed by tropical storm Irene. Congressman Bill Owens will be to looking at damage in the town of Jay this morning along with town supervisor Randy Douglas
But in many areas, wreckage and debris are strewn through whole communities.
In the Washington County village of Greenwich, meanwhile, neighborhoods have been evacuated because cracks were found yesterday in a dam on the Batten Kill River.
Village Mayor David Doonan told the Glens Falls Post Star that it isn't clear whether the cracks were present before the storm. An inspection of the dam by state officials is planned for today.
As Brian Mann reports, communities across the North Country are still taking stock, trying to sort out just how far-reaching the damage from Irene will be.
