WEST TURIN, N.Y. (WWNY) - Storms rolled across parts of Lewis County Wednesday afternoon.

Tree trunks split -- some covering yards -- others were up against power lines.

It was a common theme in the town of West Turin on Wednesday as crews worked to clean up the damage.

On Fish Creek Road, about five miles outside Constableville, trees were leaning up against power lines. And right next to it, a tree completely bent over above the base, but the branches were not blocking the road.

Right around the corner on Sweeney Road, trees fell onto someone’s yard, leaving a tree trunk leaning across the lawn and a whole mess of leaves and branches on the side of the road.

Another tree was down on someone’s lawn on Fish Creek Road closer to the village, this one falling just beside the house.

All in all, the storms only lasted about an hour and despite some visible damage, for the crews cleaning up, it was just another day on the job.
