Wildfires Plague North Country

Local fire squads and New York state forest rangers across the North Country have responded to more than a hundred grass and forest fires this spring. Light rain, combined with a thin snow pack and high winds have left many areas tinder dry. Fire experts say most of the wildfires have been triggered by burn barrels or by people setting fire to chaff in their fields. A ban on open burning went into effect yesterday in St. Lawrence County. Fire officials in the rest of the region are strongly discouraging people from setting open flames. Brian Mann has details.  Go to full article

National Grid Defends Response To "Devastating" Storm

Because the power outage lasted more than three days, National Grid will have to file a report with the state Public Service Commission. David Flanagan, a spokesman for the regulatory agency, told the Associated Press, "We will look at the company's response and the restoration." National Grid officials say they have done their best to deal with the aftermath of a devastating and unpredictable storm. More than 300 utility polls were snapped by the wind or by falling trees. Brian Mann spoke with Steve Brady, corporate communications manager for National Grid, based in Buffalo.  Go to full article

National Grid Faces Anger After "Slow" Storm Clean-Up

National Grid officials say all but a handful of homes and businesses in the north country should have electricity restored, six days after a windstorm swept New York state. The storm caused outages to more than 300 thousand homes and businesses and killed at least two people. In the Champlain Valley and the Adirondacks, shelters were set up for displaced families. National Grid now faces growing criticism from local leaders for their response to the storm. State assemblywoman Teresa Sayward, a Republican from Willsboro, has complained about the response to the state's Public Service Commission. Sayward told Brian Mann that many locals no longer trust National Grid to provide reliable service or to provide accurate information during a crisis.  Go to full article
