Lodi Point State Park to reopen after August flooding

Seneca County’s Lodi Point State Park is set to reopen Oct. 27 after being closed to the public since August due to severe flooding that prompted a federal disaster declaration.

First closed Aug. 17 after a severe storm led to flooding that caused enough damage to cross the $28.29 million threshold to qualify for federal aid, the park was subsequently used as a staging area for emergency crews.

Emergency workers used the park as a base from which to launch debris removal operations and emergency responses, according to a press release from the state Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation.
