Additional municipalities added to travel ban list
Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz has amended the original state of emergency declared Nov. 18 due to severe weather impacting additional communities. As such, the following is an updated list of municipalities with travel bans under the state of emergency declared in Erie County. Based on declarations of town and village state of emergencies, several municipalities have now been added to the original list.
The following municipalities now have a travel ban. The only vehicles allowed are emergency vehicles.
"As the storm has raged on, communities which were not impacted originally are now," Poloncarz said. "With public safety being the No. 1 thought in all of our minds, it is incumbent on all citizens to observe driving bans in any of the affected communities. I thank the public for its patience and its assistance as we deal with this storm."
