Genesee County Emergency Services, law enforcement and emergency responders were extremely prepared for the impending impact of the storm. At around 2 this morning, things were ramped down because the impact wasn’t as severe as anticipated.
Emergency Management Coordinator Tim Yaeger explains the county’s status today.
“It looks like the worst is past us," he said. "The only thing we are watching now is the limited rise of the Tonawanda Creek. Right now it does not look like it’s going to reach any flood-stage level, but we continue to monitor that.”
Yaeger also says the department is monitoring unsecured tree limps that didn’t fall during the storm, but could now.
He also says there’s a chance that local emergency responders could be called to assist the Downstate areas hit hard by Hurricane Sandy, but that hasn’t happened yet.
