Parts of Ontario County were also hit hard by the heavy rains. The rain washed out some roads completely, making them impassable for drivers.

Ontario County Sheriff Phil Povero says the county will begin to open some roads right now. Most of the major roads in the town of Richmond have been flooded out.

Some of the roads have collapsed under the pressure, leaving big gaping holes. Rain also flooded the creek and that impacted nearby homes. 

One resident took News10NBC inside to show us the damage. Trisha Smith was home with her children when she says water just came rushing in. She says it was like walking on a waterbed.

Ontario County Emergency Director Jeff Harloff says this area of Ontario County is the hardest hit and he's worried about the prediction of more rain over the next few days.

There is still a travel advisory for the following Ontario County areas: Town of Richmond, the hamlet of Honeoye and the Town of Canadice.

Right now, there is no unnecessary travel in the area of County Road #33 and Lower Egypt Road.

Road issues:
County Road 33 is closed from East Lake Road to County Road 34
County Road 36 at Route 20A is being barricaded to prevent traffic
County Road 36 is closed in the area of Jersey Hill Road near Lambo’s Mobile Home Park
Intersection of County Roads 15 and 37 is closed due to flooding
Allen's Hill Road, between Nighan Hill Road and Pierpont Road in Richmond, closed as water has caused pavement to collapse making road impassable.
