Westmoreland state park update
From reporter Katie Thisdell:
Westmoreland state park will be closed for at least three weeks due to damage from Hurricane Irene. Trees are toppled throughout the park, laying on top of several cabins, campsites and powerlines. Crews from the park and other state parks are working to clear trees off the roads. Park manager Ken Benson, who lives at the state park with his family, says the upcoming Labor Day weekend is one of the biggest times here, and cabins and campsites had been booked. The park celebrated its 75th anniversary this summer. Several of the cabins with trees were buit by the CCC.
