August 19, 2021

From County Emergency Services Director Tim Marshall:

Steuben County and Village of Addison officials advise residents of the southside of the Village of Addison that were evacuated may return to their homes.

When residents reach their home, if their natural gas service is not functioning, they are advised to call Corning Natural Gas Customer Service at (607) 936-3755.

If residents smell the odor of natural gas, they should not enter the building, and should call 911 immediately.

The State of Emergency for the Towns of West Union, Woodhull, Troupsburg, Tuscarora, Greenwood, Canisteo, Hornellsville, Jasper, and Addison remains in effect until further notice. Many roads are closed, damaged, and covered with debris. Public Works crews will be working throughout the morning to inspect damage and restore safe passage. Evacuated residents from Addison may return, but all others must stay off the road to ensure that this work can be accomplished safely. State Route 417, 36 and 248 are still closed along with many County and Town Roads.

The Red Cross shelters at the Corning-Painted Post High School and the Canisteo Fire Department remain open and available for displaced residents.
