Cold slows floods, but some areas still underwater

WATERBURY, Vt. (AP) Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin says damage from recent flooding has been wide-ranging and warns that Lake Champlain is nearing flood stage.

About 45 roads were closed Tuesday and Wednesday. Officials say a bridge also washed out in Johnson.

The National Weather Service also says widespread flooding will occur along the Passumpsic River in Lyndonville and St. Johnsbury Center.  Go to full article

Flood warnings remain as most rivers begin to fall

After several days of high flood waters across the region, most rivers appear to be cresting or beginning to recede, thanks to dry weather and unseasonably cold weather that slowed the spring snow melt.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo declared a state of emergency yesterday for much of the North Country due to flooding concerns. The declaration affects Essex, Franklin, Herkimer, Jefferson, Lewis and St. Lawrence counties. He said state officials are also keeping a close eye on flooding along the upper Hudson and along the Mohawk River.

Cuomo acknowledged that floodwaters are receding already in most areas, but said that emergency declaration would free up state officials to aid local response efforts.
Flood warnings remain in effect for much of our listening area, including the Black River valley around Watertown. It's expected to crest later today there at more than four feet above flood stage.  Go to full article

Rains add to flood threat in Vermont, parts of NH and ME

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) Heavy rains and melting snow and ice have pushed rivers toward or above flood stage in northern New England.

The National Weather Service has issued flood warnings for most counties in Vermont. Emergency management officials say a number of state and local roads are closed due to high water and more are expected to close as rivers crest.  Go to full article

Surging rivers hit roads, damage hydro dam

Despite last night's cold weather, flood watches and warnings remain in effect for all of the North Country and Vermont. Significant flooding, sparked by rain and snow melt, has already been reported in much of the region, with a state of emergency declared in St. Lawrence County and roads closed by high water in many counties.

At this hour, the National Weather Service is reporting moderate flooding on the Black River in Watertown and the the Hudson River at North Creek.

A National Grid substation on Rt. 53 in St. Lawrence County was inundated by water on Tuesday, but National Grid spokeswoman Virginia Limmiatis says the 1300 customers served by that substation are now getting their power from another feeder.

The high water is also putting pressure on the region's dams. On the east branch of the St. Regis River in St. Regis Falls, a hydro dam owned by Azure Mountain Power was damaged this week by ice and high water.  Go to full article

April showers to bring snow to Southern and Eastern Ontario

TORONTO - If you packed away your snow shovel and winter coat, you may need to haul them out again as winter delivers one more cruel blast across southern and eastern Ontario. The warm air that recently enveloped the region is being pushed out by a sharp Arctic cold front accompanied by stiff northwesterly winds.

Environment Canada said temperatures would plunge to below freezing by the morning in some areas and during the day on Tuesday. And, as it turns colder, rain was expected to change to freezing rain and ice pellets and then to snow over southern Ontario by morning, and over eastern Ontario through Tuesday.

Environment Canada says five to 10 centimetres of snow was expected across much of southern Ontario for the morning commute and over Eastern Ontario through the day.  Go to full article
