WELLSVILLE, N.Y. (WIVB) — Allegany County has been getting hit hard with torrential rain on Friday.

Not a whole lot of road closures have come to the attention of News 4, but drivers were certainly stopped in their tracks as flooded roads blocked their paths.

One of the roads that closed was in Cuba — specifically Rt. 446 in between Bull St. and Lake St.

Many residents have started pumping water from their cellars. Check out the gallery below to see Allegany County and the surrounding area through the eyes of locals.
