High Winds Wreak Havoc in Twin Tiers
Strong, gusty winds overnight in the Southern Tier of New York and Northern Tier of Pennsylvania brought down numerous power lines, trees and scattered many Christmas decorations.
Early this morning, New York State reported over 1,700 customers in Broome County and hundreds in Tioga, Chenango and Delaware counties were without power.
Emergency services dispatchers reported a constant flow of phone calls into their call centers about power lines and trees down. At one point, Ann Road in Windsor was made impassable by fallen trees.
NYSEG had the power restored to the majority of customers in the region by mid-morning.
