Feb 09, 2007 — This week, lake-effect snow squalls have dumped on Oswego, Jefferson, Lewis, Herkimer and Hamilton Counties. Accumulation in some areas could be deeper than eight feet. James Martin is Director of Emergency Services for Lewis County. He spoke with Jonathan Brown. Martin says the snow is hitting the area in thin bands - which is causing problems for his department. Residents think a squall has passed and head out to run errands only to find themselves in white-out conditions.
