Flood watch issued for potential ice jams on local creeks

Jan 21, 2018

The return of milder temperatures and a threat of rain could create more ice jam flooding in the coming days.

The National Weather Service has posted a flood watch for people who live near creeks and streams in Erie, Chautauqua and Cattaraugus Counties from Monday afternoon through Tuesday evening.

Meteorologists say Buffalo, Cayuga, Cazenovia and Cattaraugus Creeks are typically most prone to ice jams.
