This weekend in the Adirondacks

John Warren of the Adirondack Almanack looks at outdoor recreation conditions around the Adirondacks each weekend.

High waters and flooding remain a concern as snowpack in the mountains continues to melt, although most rivers should be below flood stage this weekend. Some crossings however, may not be passable with waters continuing to run well above normal.  Go to full article

Updated: Black River receding, but officials urge caution

UPDATE - 2 P.M. High water in the Black River continues to fall. According to the the National Weather service, the water level at Watertown reads 11.5 feet at this hour. The Schroon River also continues to fall, but remains in the moderate to major flood zone, at just over 9 feet at Rivebank.

UPDATE - 8 A.M. The Black River is falling this morning. According to the National Weather Service, it's now just over 12 feet at Watertown, still two feet above flood stage, but down a foot and a half since it crested early yesterday morning.

It had been expected to crest at 14.2 feet, but after reaching 13.8 feet the river fell through the day. Those levels are still the second highest the Black River has been in recorded history. Flood warnings remain in effect for Jefferson and Lewis counties, and counties along Lake Champlain.


APR 18, 2104 - People along the Black River in the Watertown area were watching the river closely today, after forecasters predicted the Black would come close to setting a new record for high water as it crested. But as of this afternoon, the water levels are going down, according to the National Weather Service and emergency crews on the ground.  Go to full article

St. Lawrence River ice slows ships, delays Port of Oswego opening

Ice floes slowing ships in the St. Lawrence River are delaying the opening of the shipping season at the Port of Oswego till next week.

Executive director Zelko Kirincich says the shipping season was scheduled to begin last Friday. But ships waited in line earlier this week as thick ice forced the Canadian Coast Guard to send out ice breakers to reopen shipping lanes.  Go to full article

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
