Leone says county Emergency Officials still assessing damage from Tuesday afternoon's storms...

Chautauqua County officials will be taking the state's cue on assessing the damage following the severe storms that brought localized flash flooding and damaging winds to portions of the county yesterday.  County Emergency Services Director Julius Leone says crews had to deal with the Water Street bridge in Fredonia... and, high waters that closed a portion of Route 60 in the town of Pomfret -- near Spoden Road.  Leone adds there was high water in Stockton... and, power outages in the Lakewood area.  Leone says they may make an assessment of storm damage... but, how much help they get will depend on the state.  He says they're talking with town highway superintendents... and, try to get an indication of how much damage there was overall.  While there wasn't a lot of widespread damage... Leone says yesterday's severe weather was a reminder about how quickly it can hit... and, why we must be prepared for it.

Abramson talks about Edward Snowden case, ethics at Chautauqua...

The former executive editor of the New York Times says the man at the center of the National Security Agency scandal is in a "tricky" position right now.  That's why Jill Abramson believes Edward Snowden has requested an extension of his exile in Russia after allegedly leaking sensative information about the United States... and, it's intelligence gathering.  Speaking with our Jim Roselle at Chautauqua Institution... Abramson said Snowden will likely face prosecution if he returns to the U-S... but, adds that staying in Russia doesn't help his case in being viewed as a whistleblower.  Abramson spoke as part of "The Ethics of Privacy" Week at Chautauqua.
