I heard from a resident of Portville, NY that "Wimpy's" had a honey-dipper truck down in their parking lot trying to pump water out of the parking lot and possibly the building to try and save the property from the onslaught of flooding which is supposed to crest sometime tomorrow (12/3/2010) before noon.

As for Olean...
Its a pretty good idea to have dike embankments along the rivers but why only on one side in some places?! I see that the cement housings [flood control valves] along the river-side of the dikes only have maybe a little over 3ft till they are touching water... not a good sign. I couldn't see the water level marker on the South Union Street Bridge, but the waters' dark, muddy, fast and rising quick.
