Residents in parts of West Seneca spent the day keeping a close eye on creeks that run through the town after the National Weather Service issued flood warnings for parts of Buffalo and Cazenovia Creeks.

John Gullo, emergency manager for the town, said people in flood-prone areas needed to take precautions such as making sure sump pumps were working, things were off basement floors, and residents had a "go-bag" ready in case evacuations were issued.

Although, Gullo said the likelihood of evacuations was small as creeks, while high with water, were flowing well.
