By SLVFD News Room
June 30, 2017

The SLVFD, the Village of Saranac Lake, and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation are currently monitoring water levels in the area including the area surrounding Saranac Lake, Lake Flower, and the Saranac River. Due to recent heavy rain flash flooding is very possible. Additional rain in the coming days may aggravate the situation.

Statement from Mayor Rabideau: FLOOD WARNING. We have a strong likelihood of flooding along Lake Flower should rains continue. The lake level jumped 5-6" today due to the unusually heavy rains last night added to the already high level resulting from the preceding rainy days. Our flood gates at the dam are almost wide open as we also must balance the protection of those downriver. Sandbags are being prepared at our Public Works Department and village personnel are "on-call" for the next day or so. Reverse 911 calls to those in flood-prone areas will be made soon. Please remain vigilant...and safe...perhaps one could check on neighbors for their safety as well. Thank you."

We are urging extreme caution around area waterways, avoidance if possible and or the use of Life Jackets is appropriate if you are near or on the water.

If more information becomes available we will post it here at www.saranaclakefire.com. If you have any questions at all please call the fire house at (518) 891-2333.
