  • Tropical Storm Irene didn’t do much damage here, but its 4 inches of rain did fill up our rivers. Tuesday, volunteers gathered samples on the Souhegan and Merrimack rivers, as they have done twice weekly for the past 15 summers, only to face much higher water levels. This “screen shot” from a Web video shows Telegraph reporter David Brooks using a thermometer to check water temperature of the Souhegan River near the canoe port on Rt. 122 in Amherst Tuesday, August 30, 2011. Usually he does his testing in knee-deep water in the middle of the river, but the flow volume, at almost 900 cubic feet/second, was roughly 20 times greater than usual for this time of year.
