Severe Weather & Downed Website

what a crazy day, huh? Around noon today, a line of very strong thunderstorms formed in Central Pennsylvania and raced our way. These storms left a path of destruction as they blasted through Central New York. Here are just a few of the more impressive reports:

  • A roof was blown off a building in Van Etten
  • A tree was uprooted on Elm Street here in Groton (winds estimated at 55-65 mph)
  • A 74 mph wind gust was recorded atop the Carrier Dome in Syracuse....that is hurricane force!
  • Flash flooding, especially in the Binghamton area where it is still raining heavily and over 200 people hav had to be rescued (as of 11 PM) and a Mudslide has closed part of Interstate 88
  • Two unconfirmed tornadoes in Marietta and Chitnago
More on the damage in the coming days.

Speaking of the coming days, my website will be down Friday afternoon through Sunday.
