Half-inch of ice reported in Massena
MASSENA, New York (WWNY) - Freezing rain and sleet left trees, utility lines, and just about everything else encased in ice in parts of St. Lawrence County.
A half-inch of ice was recorded at 7 a.m. Thursday at the Massena International Airport.
Former 7 News reporter Keith Benman snapped some photos around Massena. He found a tree limb that had fallen under the weight of the ice.
According to weather.com, ice can increase the weight of branches by 30 times.
It also says a half-inch accumulation on power lines can add 500 pounds of extra weight.
