Lost Hikers Describe Struggle to Survive Blizzard

Yesterday, a state police helicopter flew two Canadian hikers to a hospital in Saranac Lake. The men were lost in the High Peaks for four days. They faced a fierce winter storm and sub-zero temperatures. As Brian Mann reports, there were times when the hikers thought they wouldn't survive.  Go to full article

Search Ends: Canadian Hikers Found

Two Canadians missing on Mt. Marcy were found last night. 19-year-old Phillip Mousseau and 20-year-old Jean Richer turned up at the state's High Peaks outpost near Lake Colden. The men apparently followed a trail through deep snow that had been cleared by state forest rangers. The trail led them to the ranger's cabin at 7:30 in the evening--after four days lost in the mountains. Despite a two-day blizzard that shut down the North Country, the pair are described as in good condition. Both were hungry and dehydrated, with mild hypothermia, but there were no signs of frostbite or other injuries. The men spent last night at Lake Colden. At this hour (8 am) a helicopter is en route to fly them out of the mountains. Brian Mann visited the search headquarters late yesterday afternoon. He sends this report.  Go to full article

Not every funnel cloud is a tornado

Towering black clouds gave a dramatic warning of the storm sweeping toward Potsdam mid-afternoon Tuesday. Most alarming was a funnel-shaped cloud reported by eyewitnesses, and captured in photographs. Say "funnel" and lots of us think: "tornado."

But not all funnel clouds are tornadoes, even when they're apparently dropping down from a big, black cloud.

Martha Foley got an alternative explanation and another name, derecho, from Aileen O'Donogue, who teaches climatology as well as astronomy at St. Lawrence University. Aileen was on the ground watching as the storm came toward Potsdam. (Note: we'd love a high resolution picture of Tuesday's funnel-shaped cloud. E-mail images to: radio@ncpr.org)  Go to full article
