Rain causes flooding, damage

YATES, STEUBEN COUNTIES—The Sheriff's Offices of Yates and Steuben Counties reported flooding on numerous roads, culverts, and ditch erosion, Thursday, April 28, due to the heavy rainfall in the last few days specifically.
The Yates sheriff added that the hardest struck area in the county was Vine Valley and South Lake Roads in Middlesex.  Town Supervisor Robert Multer declared South Lake Road was in a state of emergency, Wednesday, April 27, and encouraged the evacuation of residents on that road for all house numbers 1025 and higher.  The Red Cross of the Finger Lakes even opened a temporary emergency shelter for Middlesex residents.
Authorities warn that water in streams emptying into Keuka, Seneca, Waneta, Lamoka, and Canandaigua Lakes is fast moving and contains tree limbs and other washed-out debris.
The Yates Sheriff's Office said residents reported heavy debris in the Keuka Outlet Thursday morning.  Officials said boaters on all lakes and waterways need be cautious of floating debris and to use reduced speeds.
