Strong Winds Blamed For Stockholm Barn Collapse

Tools

Mother Nature sent plenty of wild weather into St. Lawrence County.

Strong gusty winds are being blamed for the collapse of a barn in the town of Stockholm Thursday afternoon.
 
The barn, located on Haack Road, was destroyed.

Seven cows and three pigs were trapped inside the barn, which was owned by Marion Bradishand.

The animals were not hurt and were rescued by volunteers from Brasher-Winthrop Fire Department, neighbors and family members.

Meanwhile, the damaging winds tore off a section of roof flashing on a vacant building owned by Clarkson University on Pierrepont Avenue.

The building once housed the university's Center for Liberal Studies.
 
And on the Grasse River in Russell, a developing ice jam caused the river to spill over its banks resulting in some minor flooding.

Large chunks of floating ice jammed up resulting in water lapping at the edge of Pestle Street Road.
 
In Massena, the strong wind gusts didn't cause any serious damage, but combined with driving snow to make for some difficult times on the road for both motorists and pedestrians.
