See the Top 5 stories from July on Orleans Hub
Photos by Tom Rivers – Two people were seriously injured in a one-car accident on Horan Road in Ridgeway on July 19. It took firefighters almost an hour and a half to extricate the driver from the car.
Orleans Hub had a strong month in July, averaging 6,569 daily users or 203,627 over 31 days. The 6,569 average was exactly the same as in June, an uncanny statistical match.
We had a total of 617,809 page views. There were 16 articles that topped 1,000 page views or “clicks,” which I think is the most we’ve ever had in a month since we started the Orleans Hub in April 2013.
The top five stories (the ones with the most “clicks”) last month include:
1. 17 arrested in big drug bust in Orleans County
2. Mercy Flight takes 2 from car accident in Ridgeway
3. Sheriff identifies people in serious Ridgeway accident
4. Medina native killed in hit-and-run in South Carolina
5. National Grid says nearly 2,000 without power in Orleans
July was a busy month for community festivals, including the Fourth of July celebration in Lyndonville, which was capped with a big fireworks show.
