There's a major wind storm whipping through Buffalo this moment, and it's expected to continue until 10 PM or so.
Here's a collection of the best live (or, almost live) online web cams you can use to scout the city proper and beyond for damage and conditions.
Once you land on the site, scroll in to Buffalo. You'll see a dozen and more camera links mounted across the interstate highway system. Pick one by clicking the camera and assuming the camera is working (some are not) you'll first be presented with a static image, but if it's available, you can click the "video" link for live video.
Offered up by BuffaloWebcam.com, Mr. Pizza is a smooth look at this entire sordid affair from the pedestrian level as the neighborhood goes on as close to normal as it can.
The same website offers a view North on Elmwood.
The Peace Bridge Authority apparently hosts a series of live webcams via YouTube Live. Awesome. They have 4 operating webcams, all crystal clear.
This isn't a live camera but if you click the remote viewing box you'll get a self-refreshing updated image every minute (remember to allow pop-ups for this site in your web browser). The camera overlooks the intersection of Delaware Avenue and Allen Street.
We might as well keep this list growing for tonight, and beyond! If you know of another operating webcam, be sure to contact me.
