Sheriff Brian Schenck has updated the Travel Advisory, issuing a No Unnecessary Travel advisory as flooding continues in Cayuga County.
The travel advisory was issued during the overnight hours, then during the morning, as heavy rain continued to fall- Schenck upgraded it to a No Unnecessary Travel advisory.
That doesn’t prohibit travel, but strongly discourages it due to conditions.
“Highway Departments and Emergency Crews are running short of barrels and barricades to close all the flooded roadways. Travel is hazardous in many areas. Flooded roadways may be washed out or have heavy currents,” Sheriff Schenck said. “Please avoid all unnecessary travel until further notice.”
