The reason being because those cleanup efforts are really ramping up this weekend

A number of big trucks have been seen coming and going from Lodi, hauling out massive amounts of debris and that's why access is being limited because it is dangerous with all of those agencies working as fast as they can to get the area safe and secure.

Right now, the entire strip of Lower Lake Road that took the brunt of damage is closed off at the moment. That's where piles and piles of debris has been collected and now the focus is getting them out of there.

Locals News10NBC spoke to are taking it day by day trying to stay positive and focused on the future.

Locals can still go to the Lodi Fire Station for food, water, and cleanup supplies throughout this weekend. 

The Seneca County Sheriff's Office has suggested that the curfew that has been implemented in Lodi Point, Lower Lake Road area, Town of Lodi, from 7:30 PM until sunrise remain in effect until further notice.
