Erie County Sheriff John C. Garcia is asking non-residents of East Eden to avoid the area as emergency crews continue to clean up after Wednesday’s storm.

The National Weather Service confirmed that an EF-0 tornado caused damage to buildings and trees in the area of ​​Jennings Rd., Gary Dr. and Sauer Rd. Additional damage was noted on other roadways, including Sisson Highway in Eden and Langford Rd. in North Collins.

As of Thursday afternoon, all county roads in the affected areas have been reopened to traffic, although Route 75 (Sisson Highway) remains closed from E. Church Street to New Oregon Road.

Residents should stay away from damaged buildings and drivers should avoid fallen trees, power lines and any standing water on the roads.

“I want to thank the first responders, public service workers and utility crews who have been working diligently since the storm hit yesterday afternoon,” said Sheriff Garcia. “The damage caused by this tornado is heartbreaking, but I have no doubt that the people of the affected neighborhoods will show their resilience as they clean up and rebuild.”

Residents requiring police services may call Erie County Sheriff’s Office dispatchers at (716) 858-2903. In the event of an emergency, please dial 911.
