This area sustained heavy damage during last Wednesday's flood.

Lieutenant Governor Jim Cawley, Pa. Senate President Pro Tempore Joe Scarnati (R-Jefferson) and state Representative Matt Gabler (R-Clearfield/Elk) were in town Tuesday morning and into the early afternoon to assess the flood damage that ravaged Ridgway last week.
Ridgway Borough Manager Kim Zimmerman and Ray Imhof, emergency coordinator for both Ridgway Borough and Township, and assistant fire chief, spoke Tuesday morning of the severity of the disaster during an emergency briefing downtown.
The state leaders then were transported by an Elk County Emergency Services van to residences and businesses along Penn Avenue where they met with several property and business owners.
