The State of Emergency Remains in Affect

In coordination with the Red Cross, Steuben County asks that residents and organizations please refrain from dropping donations off at the two active shelters in Corning and Canisteo. The generosity of county residents is unquestioned and greatly appreciated, especially in times of emergency. However, the Red Cross is unable to accept donations at these sites at this time. The damage area is still being assessed by Local, County and State Officials. A time will come when you can all help get our communities back on their feet, but right now we need to assess the damage and make plans for a proper recovery. The County will work with our Local Community Organizations to deploy the properly staffed and trained resources to assist the residents in the disaster area.
