RUTLAND — U.S. Forest Service officials in Vermont and New York are urging extra caution for those who may want to venture out in the woods in the days following the storm.
The Forest Service says overhead dangers may remain present even after the weather clears, with branches or even whole trees set to fall.
Another concern is that streams and rivers may be swollen from the rains that fell during the storm.
Colleen Madrid, forest supervisor for the Green Mountain National Forest in Vermont and Finger Lakes National Forest in New York, says crews will be working to clear up any hazards. She says the forests are not closed, but urges that people visiting them pay close attention to their surroundings.
