  • Flash flooding Sunday night caused significant damage in many areas of Steuben County.
    Rainfall totals ranged from an inch to nearly four inches in some parts of the county, said Tim Marshall, director of the Steuben County Office of Emergency Management.
    There were flooding issues in parts of the towns of Bath, Avoca, Canisteo, Prattsburgh, Pulteney, Urbana and Wayne, Marshall said.
    Some of the heavier damage was around Keuka Lake, in the Keuka Village and Crystal Beach areas, he said. The Campbell Creek area in Bath was also hard hit, where there was three feet of standing water over County Route 119 on Monday morning.
    The problems included road washouts and culvert damage, and debris left on roads by receding water, Marshall said.
    Many of the roads and culverts had just been repaired from the flooding that hit the area in mid-May.
    Local volunteer fire departments have also been busy helping residents with flooded basements, Marshall added.
