Busy Contractor Crews Shoveling Snow from Roofs


West Seneca, NY - With the weight of several feet of snow bearing down on the roofs of homes and businesses, some contracting crews were scrambling today to remove the bulk of it from some houses.

Roofing contractors like William C. Rott and Son say they've been extremely busy today. On Delray Avenue in West Seneca a crew was working to get the snow off a roof which is above a family room where they already saw some cracks in the ceiling.

The homeowner, Dick Wohlfeil says "I noticed a couple of cracks that I never had before and where the beams are, I could see a very slight separation on the color maybe about where the beam was stained underneath it."

Dick Wohlfeil says he's lived here 40 years and has never seen this much snow. And after noticing those interior problems he knew it was time to call in some help to remove roughly five feet or snow or more.

2 Mothers accused of leaving kids in car while tanning


WEST SENECA, NY - West Seneca Police have charged two women in two separate incidents for allegedly leaving their children in their cars while they went tanning.

West Seneca Police say they were called to the Zoom Tan parking lot at 3531 Seneca Street for a report of an infant left inside a vehicle. When the officer arrived on scene, he discovered the vehicle with a two-month old baby inside as the mother was coming out of the tanning salon. The mother, Nina Poliseno, of Cheektowaga, was arrested and charged with endangering the welfare of a child. She will be arraigned November 18.
