One-year anniversary of “fairnado”

Local News

Friday marked the one year anniversary of a wild weather event in Western New York.

Four tornadoes ripped through the south towns and the southern-tier destroying everything in their path.

Fortunately, no one was seriously injured.

The day was dubbed  “Fairnado” because of the millions of dollars in damages it caused to the area and the Erie County Fairgrounds.

The tornadoes nearly put the annual Erie County Fair on hold, but crews and fair organizers were able to get things up and running before the fair began.
