Floods Prompt St. Lawrence County To Declare State Of Emergency
St. Lawrence County has declared a state of emergency due to flooding.
The towns of Brasher and Stockholm have issued emergency orders.
A number of roads and bridges remained closed across the county.
Tuesday night, the Route 11 C bridge in Brasher was closed. The Brasher Fire Department split manpower and stationed firefighters on each side to cover each side of the bridge.
Earlier in the day, it was an eerie but breathtaking scene as hundreds of thousands of gallons of water flowed over Brookfield Power's South Edwards Dam.
