Penn Yan cleanup continues Thursday

Updated: Friday, June 6 2014, 05:38 PM EDT

Penn Yan, N.Y. -- The long road to recovery in Yates County continued Thursday morning after severe storms ripped through the area earlier this week.

Leaders in Penn Yan said the storms likely caused millions of dollars in damage and cleanup efforts could take months. The town’s mayor said he expects to get an estimate Thursday.

People who have lived in Penn Yan their whole lives said it has been decades since they have seen this type of damage.

Tuesday night’s sudden, heavy rain overwhelmed creeks and brooks, breaking apart pavement, caving in sidewalks and separating entire streets. Penn Yan’s mayor urged people to use caution on roadways as some may be unstable. Residents were also being asked to conserve water.

Debris and muck remain scattered throughout the area, with many people shoveling the mess out of their homes.

Penn Yan schools are closed again Thursday, and are not likely to reopen until Monday due to road closings.

Thursday is expected to be mostly free of rain, but more thunderstorms are predicted for later in the evening and on Friday.

Anyone in need of assistance is asked to contact the Red Cross, which has set up a shelter at the Penn Yan Academy on Court Street.
