Thursday, April 28, 2011 - 7:23 am

Portions of the Higley Flow area along the Raquette River in Colton were flooded late Thursday, as shown in this photo on the Gulf Road submitted by Sherri Hennessy of Colton. Brookfield Power, which operates hydroelectric plants and dams along the river, began releasing water at twice the average rate for this time of year because they feared they might otherwise lose control of the river flow.
