Polar Vortex Paints Falls in White

NIAGARA FALLS, NY - The mighty falls at Niagara have been in the national spotlight this week, ever since the "polar vortex" blizzard of 2014 blew through and left everything in a frosty coat of snow and ice.

Artists and photographers have flocked to the area to capture the natural spectacle. Enjoy this vicarious visit to the Falls courtesy of 2 On Your Side Chief Photographer Andy Desantis.

Heroic Rescue from Burning Apartment Building

MIDDDLEPORT, NY - Middleport Police Chief John Swick says he's responded to house fires before in his law enforcement career, and emphasizes that he is no hero, but Wednesday's successful rescue obviously brings a smile to this grandfather's face.

The YouTube video shown here is from a helmet cam as shot by volunteer firefighter Douglas MacPherson of Monroe County, who stopped to help while driving by. You can see the intensity of the flames and the rolling smoke from the fire which broke out around 9 a.m. Wednesday morning in this apartment building on Telegraph Road.

Flood Information for Amherst Residents

During this last rain event a lot of residents had issues with some level of flooding inside or around their home.  When the water table is high and the rainfall/snowmelt combination is high, water can get in your home through floor drains, toilets and washtubs.  Some residents fared well by having a stop flow valve previously installed in the line that runs out of their home. Some simply used a plug in the floor drain. This either eliminated or limited the back flow into their homes. For more specific information contact the Plumbing Division of our Building Department at 631-7088 or 631-7080.

In the event you come upon a flooded roadway DO NOT drive through it.  Do not go around Flooded Roadway Sign or barricaded roadway.  If you see a flooded-out street ahead, turn around and find another route for your destination.
