Penn Yan Red Cross Assistance

     PENN YAN - [WENY]     The Red Cross set up a shelter for Penn Yan residents who are in need after a flash flood caused extensive damage. Penn Yan, which is located in Yates County, experienced sidewalks that were completely washed out, destroyed parking lots, even a building that collapsed.
     To help aid residents in their time of need, the American Red Cross has setup a shelter at Penn Yan Academy at 305 Court Street. The shelter has food, water, cots, and clean up kits on hand to help people that were affected by the flash flooding.
     The weather over the next 48 hours for Penn Yan is crucial. Any substantial amount of extra rain in that time period could bring back more flash flooding.
