We’ll look at some of the damage, from last week’s combination of snow, rain, and warm temperatures, which resulted in major ice jams, along the Ohio River – at the Emsworth Lock and Dam, and in Moundsville, West Virginia. Barges broke loose, some of them, sank, and river commerce has halted.

How long, will it take, to clear the area, and why are these conditions, so dangerous?
