• Ice jams in Allegheny River could rival problems that haven't been seen in almost 20 years

    PITTSBURGH - It’s predicted that ice jams in the Allegheny River could rival problems that haven't been seen in almost 20 years.

    “We’re in a mode where the ice is building and conditions are slowly deteriorating,” said Werner Loehlein of the Army Corps of Engineers.

    Loehlein told Channel 11 reporter Joe Holden his team has been busy trying to move as much ice through the locks as possible.  It’s a delicate operation since engineers only have so much water to work with from the reservoirs upstream.

    The National Weather Service anticipates ice will continue to rapidly grow.
