Irene May Have Changed Flooding Along NH River
The fire chief in Conway, N.H., says weekend flooding at campgrounds near the Saco River may have been an after-effect of Irene.
Steve Solomon told WMWV-FM, Newton, Mass., some campers were evacuated Saturday (Oct. 15) from the Eastern Slope camping area off Route 16 and from a beach camping area behind the Conway Valley Inn. No one was hurt.
Solomon had said the river has changed because of Irene. He said after the storm passed in August, the river bed is now full of gravel and it has carved new courses around Conway that will change future flooding.
