Heavy Winds Leave 35k Without Power in New York

November 16, 2020

NEW YORK — More than 30,000 customers were without power in the Buffalo area and the Hudson Valley on Monday morning after New York was lashed overnight by severe thunderstorms with winds as high as 70 m.p.h.

Tornado warnings were issued Sunday night for parts of New York City and surrounding suburban areas, but there were no confirmed reports that any had touched down. Still, winds of 60 to 70 mph were recorded across the metropolitan area, said James Connolly, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service.

"It was a line of severe thunderstorms, and in part of that line there might have been tornados," he said.

The line of storms bought down tree limbs across the state. 

About 27,000 customers were without power in Buffalo and western New York on Monday morning and another 8,000 north of New York City, according to utilities.
