BUFFALO, N.Y. — After some heavy rain moved through Western New York, the National Weather Service issued a Flash Flood Warning for southeastern Erie County and northeastern Cattaraugus County until 10:15 p.m. Saturday.
Those alerts were allowed to expire on time.
The slow moving rain from earlier Saturday is of specific concern for low-lying areas and creeks/streams in the area affected by the warning.

Travel along Route 16 and the 219 may be impacted with some locally flooded roads and increase the risk for hydroplaning. Never drive a vehicle through a flooded road and turn around.
