This makes six named storms in one month, the most in a single month in the 11 year history of our network, and once again, pretty much the same areas were affected, as flow was in a 270-280 range, the Tug Hill and Oswego county off Ontario with up to a foot, and the ridges from southern Erie to NW Cattaraugus and Chautauqua counties with 8-10". This brought monthly totals to over 100" over the southeast Tug and over 70" over the ridges southeast of Lake Erie, while few problems elsewhere.
This was another brief event with little impact. It affected little population so earns just * 1 Star *.
