River reaches flood stage

on Friday, 18 April 2014.

The worst of the flooding appears to be over. Weather forecasters reported yesterday that the Black River reached a flood stage of 13.7 feet & was expected to stay at that level & begin to slowly drop during the
night. The river was originally predicted to reach a flood stage in excess of 14 feet. Meanwhile, farms in Lewis County are having to dump milk from their dairy herds as there is no way for tankers to reach the flooded areas. U.S. Senator Charles Schumer is expected to visit the area today & plans to urge the USDA to issue a secretarial disaster declaration for Lewis and St. Lawrence counties due to the flooding, which has caused a widespread displacement of cattle and loss of feed. The disaster declaration would make emergency low-interest loans from the USDA immediately available to impacted farmers in Lewis and St. Lawrence Counties, as well as any county that borders either of them.
