The Buffalo Region experienced a generational storm for the ages. Beginning on Friday, December 23, the multi-day blizzard found thousands without power, low food supplies, road closures, public transportation shut downs, and so much more devastation including loss of life.

We have compiled a list of “go-to” resources for the community:

  • 9-1-1- for life-threatening medical Emergencies
  • 716-858-SNOW (7669) for urgent, but not life threatening, situations.  For example, almost out of insulin or need to get to dialysis appointment.
  • 3-1-1 for City of Buffalo, non-urgent needs.  Downed trees, street flooding, etc.
  • 2-1-1 for resource mapping
  • Warming Centers: St. Luke’s – 325 Walden Avenue
  • Code Blue Shelters: Holy Cross at 412 Niagara Street and 586 Genesee Street

JFS may be able to assist clients on a case-by-case basis and we will continue to update this resource list as necessary.
