CHAUTAUQUA COUNTY, NY ( WKBW ) Chautauqua County Sheriff's alerted Eyewitness News that 2 roads were closed late Friday afternoon due to rain and flooding conditions.

Route 60 between Sinclairville and Gerry; and Bates Road between Sinclairville and Ellington.

While the rain has stopped and the roads are now open again, caution is urged when you come up on pools of water on any roadway. Do not drive through it. The water might be deeper than you think, resulting in a flooded and trapped vehicle. Drive around the water, or take an alternate route.
