Western New York Snow Event
Special Request for Additional Structural Engineers
Beginning early this week, Western New York has experienced a significant snowfall event. Over six feet of snow has accumulated in some areas. The weather service predicts temperatures will rise above freezing through early next week, resulting in a significant snowmelt and the potential for flooding in the region. There is also the risk of building collapse as a result of the weight of the snow.
DBSC is assembling a list of individuals who would be available from Monday November 24 to Wednesday December 3.
All Interested individuals (Code Enforcement Officials, Engineers and Architects) should send an email toCEDAR@dos.ny.gov, and indicate their name, contact information and available dates. Individuals will then be contacted with additional information.
