The Ice Storm of 1998 - rural Ontario

Weather disasters sometimes turn into misery contests: How bad was it? Who had it worse? In Canada, "the" Ice Storm was blamed for at least 25 deaths, close to a thousand injuries, and damages that hit $3 billion. Off and on, over six long days, a stalled front stretching from Eastern Ontario to Nova Scotia, coated everything in inches of ice. With transportation, communication and power disrupted, the basics of life quickly became critical issues for millions of Canadians. Help came from every sector. Canada ordered that nation's largest-ever domestic deployment. Nearly 16,000 military personal pitched in, while another army of repair crews from across North America showed up to tackle the immense job of restoring crippled utilities. Ten years later, people mostly remember how much communities pulled together. Farm-bred Doug Thompson taught English for 35 years before taking up a second career in municipal politics. Lucy Martin caught up with Thompson as he was looking back at photographs from 10 years ago.  Go to full article

The Ice Storm of 1998: more from the archives

It's January ninth. 10 years ago today, most of this countryside stretching from northern New York into southern Ontario and Quebec, was in the dark, buried under the ice that was taking down every distribution line into region. Alexandria Bay was among the last communities to have power restored. But as Mitch Teich found when he visited the shelter at the local school, two weeks after the ice hit, people there were working hard to keep their spirits up as the new routine of ice storm survival continued.  Go to full article

Ice Storm of 1998: 10 years after, relief and recovery, pt. 2

We're marking the 10th anniversary of a storm that changed life in this region and changed the stories of our communities forever. This morning we'll hear more about relief and recovery. Five to six days of freezing rain had coated every power line, every tree and home with several inches of ice. Power was out across a wide swath of the border country of the U.S. and Canada, in some places for weeks. As the days passed, new routines were established. People figured out how to cook, or where to go to eat, how to get water or a shower. Martha Foley has more.  Go to full article

Remembering the Ice Storm of 1998

This week marks the 10th anniversary of a combination of weather that devastated a huge region of the northeastern U.S. and southern Canada, the ice storm of 1998. An unprecedented five to six days of freezing rain coated everything with inches of ice. Transportation was a nightmare. Tens of thousands of power poles came down. Countless trees snapped under the sheer weight of the ice. In New York's North Country, power was out for three weeks in some homes. It was even longer in parts of rural Canada. There, giant metal utility-towers were left in crumpled heaps. Much of Montreal, with over 3 million inhabitants, lost power for days. In the end, the storm was blamed for at least 35 deaths, and billions of dollars in damages. This week, we'll share the sounds, stories and voices of those weeks. Martha Foley has part one of our special coverage.  Go to full article

Snow and cold isolate North Country elderly

The snow has come early and often this winter. Skiers, snowmobilers and the businesses that depend on them are happy. Even some snow plow drivers say they like all the snow or, at least, the overtime they're getting to clear it. But, as Jonathan Brown reports, the North Country's elderly are suffering.  Go to full article
