Flooding forces the closure of roads in Attica
Tonawanda Creek couldn’t hold the deluge of rain this morning, subsequently forcing the closure of Dunbar Road between Route 98 and Exchange Road in Attica due to flooding.
According to two local residents, the areas just west of, and on both sides of, the bridge on Dunbar are a farmer’s fields, which were recently planted.
Currently, the Village park is under water and crews are clearing the debris left on Main Street from earlier flooding.
UPDATE 2:27 p.m.: The National Weather Service has extended the flood warning until 8 p.m. for Northern Wyoming and Livingston, Northeastern Erie, Southern Orleans and Niagara counties. Local law enforcement has reported widespread flooding throughout the region, including the closure of many roads due to high water, debris or washouts.
While the heavy rain has ended, it will take some time for the water to recede across the area, weather officials say.
