10,000 Without Power In Steuben County; Shelters Open

Steuben County 911
4 mins ·

MARCH 2, 2018

BATH – The March 2nd winter storm continues to exact a toll on Steuben County residents, with people now sheltering in Red Cross-organized shelters at the Canisteo-Greenwood High School in Canisteo and the Prattsburgh High School in Prattsburgh, with a separate warming shelter opening in the City of Hornell.

The shelters are located at:
• 84 Greenwood St., Canisteo-now open
• 2 Naples St., Prattsburgh-opening at 6:00 p.m.
• A warming Center has been established at the Hornell Community Arts Center on Broadway in the City of Hornell which opened at 5:00

Should residents be unable to make their way to a shelter on their own, they should call 2-1-1 for assistance.

County emergency management officials said no snow is currently reported in the county but sustained winds of 20-25 mph, with confirmed wind gusts of up to 40 mph are creating dangerous conditions with significant blowing and drifting across the affected areas. “Electric crews are having a difficult time making restoration with the current winds,” Marshall said.

County routes 62 in the Town of Greenwood remains closed due to downed trees, while one lane of CR 46 in Dansville is now open. The travel advisory remains in effect throughout the county. All residents are strongly advised to avoid any unnecessary travel due to the hazardous weather conditions.

Current snow totals range from 18 inches in western Steuben to 2 inches reported in southeastern Steuben.

“The snow is very heavy and wet, so please use caution when shoveling.” Said Tim Marshall, OES Director.

Widespread electrical outages have been reported, with nearly 10,000 customers without power in Steuben County.
