Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — On Friday afternoon, Hitchcock also warned that the flooding could get worse before subsiding, pointing out that the weather remains unsettled.
Paone echoed that sentiment.
“The worst of the rain is over for the night, but it’s a case where (Saturday) there could be some more scattered thunderstorms around,” Paone said. “There’s a lot of water on the ground and any additional rainfall could potentially cause some problems, but it probably won’t be as heavy as it was today. It’s something to keep an eye on for the next two days; we’ll be at the risk for more thunderstorms.”
