ORLEANS COUNTY, NEW YORK
April 20, 2017
ALBION – Orleans County Chairman David B. Callard declared a State of Emergency in Orleans County late Thursday afternoon, as rising lake levels are pushed higher heading into the weekend.
Orleans County and New York State Emergency Management Officials conducted inspections of conditions along the lakeshore in anticipation of adverse weather conditions that may cause water levels to rise further.
County officials are working to request additional resources from the state including sandbags and technical assistance. Orleans County Highway positioned ninety tons of sand in the towns of Carlton, Kendall and Yates in preparation for contingencies early Thursday morning.
Sheriff Randy Bower has offered to utilize work crews from the county jail should sand bagging operations become necessary.
All three towns have been in contact with county officials and are expected to follow the county’s lead and issue their own declarations later today.
Further information will be forthcoming as the situation develops.
