MALONE — Franklin County officials continue to monitor flooding on Lower Park Street in Malone. Malone Town Supervisor Howard Maneely said officials used the Marine 1 watercraft from the Hogansburg Fire Department to conduct flood assessment Sunday. On Saturday, Senator Betty Little toured the affected area. According to Maneely, seven residences have been evacuated, including a group adult home where seven occupants were moved to safety. Officials hope that warm weather forecast for the coming week will help break up the ice jams and diminish the flooding.
