HIT: As the fall foliage season arrives in much of upstate New York.
Beautiful outdoor scenery transforms again from lush greens to a lovely range of reds, oranges and yellows in central New York City, the Finger Lakes and all other scenic areas.
Over the next few weeks, do yourself a favor and try to hit the road to take in the scenery. We publish a weekly map of fall foliage produced by the state’s tourism division to help you focus on the brightest, most vivid colors.
MISS: To a ruptured natural gas line that forced a long road closure and the evacuation of residents and businesses Monday morning in Fleming.
A high pressure gas line was ruptured by a motor vehicle accident, resulting in potentially dangerous situations. The fire department and utility crews did a terrific job of getting people to safety and coordinating to fix the line safely.
HIT: Looking forward to a great weekend for New York’s professional sports teams.
In the National Football League, the Buffalo Bills continued their momentum with a dominant win, and the New York Giants and New York Jets got surprises for their first wins of the year.
Later in the day, the New York Yankees closed the Big Sunday with a win on foot in the last game of the season to capture a seed in the Major League Baseball playoffs.
