Throughout St. Lawrence County heavy rain impacted travel on low-lying roadways. Vehicles navigated through water covering a portion of the Norwood Burnhams Corners Road early this morning in this photo, and at least one vehicle had to be towed after going through the stream. The Austin Ridge Road was closed due to flooded conditions and the Potsdam-Madrid Road also had hazard markings where water was flowing across the highway. The National Weather Service has issued a flood advisory for St. Lawrence County through 11 a.m. For details, click here. NorthCountryNow photo by Debbie Morgan.
