Prison escape this morning from Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora, NY, about 10 miles west of Plattsburgh. My mother used to scare us at night when we were on the shore, saying, listen, can you hear the sirens, there must be a prison escape! Although I swear sometimes I did hear sirens.

New York State Police were on the hunt Saturday for two convicted murderers who escaped from the largest maximum security correctional facility in the state by cutting the wall of their cell with power tools to reach a series of tunnels that led to a manhole, authorities said.
Officials at the Clinton Correctional Facility, about 25 miles from the Canadian Border, contacted the New York State Police at 5:45 a.m. ET to report that the two inmates were missing during a 5:30 a.m. bed check, state police said in a statement.
Both inmates Richard Matt, 48, and David Sweat, 34 are considered to be a danger to the public and should not be approached, the statement said.

excerpt
Gov. Andrew Cuomo was briefed on the incident at the prison on Saturday afternoon and explained during a news conference that Matt and Sweat used power tools to cut a hole in the steel backing of their cell, crawled through a maze of tunnels and escaped through a manhole. Cuomo said prison officials had accounted for all of their tools and didn't know how or where the inmates got a hold of the equipment.
Cuomo said security guards told him that the inmates had also set up objects in their beds to make it look like people were sleeping in them.

link below shows the site of the prison. If you go due east from where it says "Beekmantown" on the map, where you hit land in Vermont (southern part of North Hero) is (almost) where the picture was taken, what was my grandparent's cottage.
