Southern Tier Storms Crush Cars


Strong thunderstorms that hit part of the Southern Tier and Central New York last evening are blamed for relatively few problems, unless it was your car a tree fell on.

Emergency Services officials in Broome, Chenango and Delaware counties reported no lingering issues with roads, other than some sticks and leaves on wet pavement. Most of Tioga County, apparently, wasn’t in the path of the 6 p.m. storm. New York State Electric and Gas only a few customers in their coverage area experiencing power interruptions into the overnight hours.

The majority of storm damage, including downed limbs and trees, was reported in the City of Binghamton.

In spite of repeatedly being warned in the past, many motorists in urban, poor-drainage areas still chose to ignore the advice to advice to never drive through water across roads.  While there were no injuries, tow truck operators were kept busy pulling stranded cars out of flooded underpass areas.

There are still chances of scattered rain showers and thunderstorms being forecast through the Labor Day weekend.
