Steps are being taken to let families who were evacuated near the site of Thursday night's plane crash into their homes so they can recover personal belongings, medications and other items.
As investigators continued their tedious mission at the crash site, David Bissonette, Clarence's emergency services coordinator, met with other government officials late this morning at Erie County's command center in Cheektowaga.
About a dozen properties were evacuated near the Long Street crash site immediately after the tragedy occurred. It will be at least a couple more days before they're allowed to permanently return.
"They are being very patient and understanding," Bissonette said of the residents of who were evacuated.
Residents are being escorted into the neighborhood by Erie County sheriff's deputies, but they have to make appointments to do so, he said.
