The evacuation of 1,000 Kane residents Wednesday following a tanker truck rollover is believed to be the largest ever in McKean County.
â€śIt was probably the largest evacuation,â€ť County Emergency Management Agency (EMA) Director Bruce Manning said Thursday. â€śI canâ€™t remember anything bigger.â€ť
Manning, who was on the scene Wednesday and returned Thursday to Kane to confer with Kane fire chief Tim Holt, said he believes the evacuation exceeded a movement of residents in 1972 due to flooding from Hurricane Agnes.
