'I've never seen anything like this,' he said, adding the Aug. 9 and 10 storms came without warning, dumping 5.5 inches of rain on the area in one hour and 7 inches over two hours. He said National Weather Service officials said the storm hovered over the area horizontally instead of the usual diagonal patterns, which lead to river and Cattaraugus Creek gauge monitoring levels constantly going up."
