More than a few area residents were awakened overnight to the sound of a New York State Police helicopter flying low overhead.

The helicopter drew complaints in Dutchess County from residents of Red Hook around 4:30 a.m. Friday, Jan. 22, as it had to change flight plans to avoid snow squalls over Columbia County, said Trooper AJ Hicks.

Hicks said the crew was working an operation in Columbia County when it made the change bringing it over Red Hook and other parts of Dutchess County.
