Creek Bank Collapse Threatens Amherst Home

By Amherst, NY

Mark Scott – A stretch of Tonawanda Creek Road is closed after the creek's bank collapsed, taking a home's back porch and hot tub with it.

Emergency officials in Amherst say a 300-foot section of ground gave way Tuesday night behind a home along Tonawanda Creek. No one was hurt. Officials allowed the family living in the home to take belongings from the house, but they were not allowed to stay the night. The ground along the creek remains unstable.

Tonawanda Creek Road is closed between New and Transit Roads except for local traffic this morning.
