Heard up North: Tupper Lake Nursing Home Evacuated

A nursing home in Tupper Lake had to be evacuated last night after the boiler system failed, leaving the building with no heat on one of the coldest nights of the winter.
Patients at Mercy Healthcare Center in Tupper Lake were transported to Sunmount, a nearby mental health facility.
They spent the night on beds and mattresses laid out in the Sunmount community room. 94-year old Rita Chaisson described the experience.  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

Heard up North: After the Winds, Still Without Power in Johnsburg

The Red Cross set up four shelters this weekend to handle displaced residents still without power. Two remain open - one in Glens Falls and another in Johnsburg. About 300 people have used the shelters (that includes people who just came in for coffee, and people who stayed the night). But that's far fewer than those affected by the storm. Cheif Steve Studnicki of Johnsburg Fire Department checked in with the shelter this afternoon.  Go to full article

Hundreds in North Country Without Power Seek Shelter

Parts of the north country are still without power this morning, following Friday's powerful windstorm. At least two people died in the gale. National Grid says about 30,000 of its customers are still without power, most of them in rural parts of eastern New York. At the peak of the storm, more than 325,000 utility customers across New York state lost power. Parts of Moriah, Westport, and Saratoga Springs were still without electricity yesterday, braving single-digit temperatures. Brian Mann spoke Monday morning with Eileen Reardon, executive director of the Adirondack-Saratoga chapter of the Red Cross.  Go to full article
