Canal System Reopens After Sandy
Albany, NY (WIBX) – The New York State Canal System has reopened after being closed for almost a week because of Hurricane Sandy.
The state closed the canal system as the storm neared and the water level was reduced to lower the risk of possible flooding from the storm.
Governor Andrew Cuomo says there was no damage to the canal system, which reopened a day ahead of schedule on Sunday.
All vessels will be allowed to continue their trips before the system is shut down for the winter on on November 15th.
