Moving to higher ground after storm

Honeoye, N.Y. If there is a symbol of how much Mondays rain has impacted life in Western New York, the Chrisman Insurance Agency may be it.

The insurance agency that handles boat, auto and home insurance found itself flooded on Monday, and the owner is now faced with the task of cleaning it up, and temporarily moving.

Were just trying to get the mud out of the front of the building so that we can work in and out of it without tracking stuff in and out, said owner John Chrisman, who told 13WHAM News that he had planned to construct a new building at the same location at a higher elevation.

I just got my building permit to build it but time basically ran out for us [just days before the storm], he said. Time just ran out on us basically.

Chrisman still plans to rebuild.

Similar cleanup could be seen in many parts of Honeoye on Tuesday, but road closures made some of the cleaning efforts difficult.

Approximately 8 roads in and around Honeoye are still partially closed after Mondays rain caused parts of them to buckle and crater.

According to Richmond Highway Supervisor Tom Fleig, he expects most of them to be repaired by the end of the week, and is asking for patience while plans are made to quickly and adequately repair the roads.
