Spring fire season sparks brush blazes

State officials have raised the fire danger in the Adirondack North Country to "high." Local fire squads and forest rangers with the Department of Environmental Conservation have already battled more than a dozen brush fires from Altona in Clinton County to Argyle in Washington County. The biggest blaze burned fifty acres over the weekend in the Flat Rock State Forest in Clinton County. A fire on the summit of Cobble Mountain in Warren County drew more than fifty firefighters. Brian Mann checked in with forest ranger Captain John Streif, who says all open burning should stop until fire conditions change.  Go to full article

Inuit tell of warming Arctic

The Arctic is among the regions hit hardest by early climate change. Inuit artists from Nunavut, Labrador and other Arctic territories are eyewitnesses to warmer winters. They gather in Ottawa twice a year for meetings of the Inuit Art Foundation. Lucy Martin spent an afternoon with the artists last April. They told her their lives are already changing. Note: The Inuit Art Foundation artists return to Ottawa for their "Arts Alive" celebration this Saturday, April 21, from 10 to 4.  Go to full article

"Poor man's fertilizer"

Spring snow. It effects people in different ways. Some try to see our recent weather in a positive light. And because this is the North Country - where spring snow is just another symptom of the region's famous cold - people have special names for this weather.
North Country Public Radio gave listeners a chance to share some of those names. And that led Jonathan Brown to a series of conversations with people across the region.  Go to full article

Ice dams flood two North Country communities

Local officials watched nervously Monday across the North Country as rivers rose with early spring rain and melting snow. Ice dams were the big worry. A bottleneck of ice on the Great Chazy River forced residents to evacuate neighborhoods in Champlain. Another dam on the Ausable River triggered flooding in the town of Jay, where a state of emergency was declared. Brian Mann was in the village of Ausable Forks yesterday when crews fought to dislodge one of the massive clots of ice. He sent this report.  Go to full article

Ausable ice jam breaks

A flood warning remains in effect through this afternoon along rivers and streams in Clinton, Essex, eastern St. Lawrence and Franklin counties, as well as parts of Vermont. A state of emergency was declared in the Town of Jay, along the Ausable River. County officials say there have been no injuries. Officials from both Essex and Franklin counties were watching as an ice jam at Ausable Forks moved downstream this afternoon, and the river was falling. Emergency officials also reported an ice jam and flooding in Champlain. Evacuations were underway. Brian Mann was also watching the Ausable. He spoke with Martha Foley at midafternoon.  Go to full article
