Wednesday Night Storms Leave Damage In Their Wake

Wednesday Night Storms Leave Damage In Their Wake

Posted: Updated:

Strong and damaging thunderstorms rolled though the north country Wednesday night. 

The storms started after 6 p.m. and packed rain and heavy winds, sweeping from Clayton east into Lewis County.

Wind gusts toppled a trailer home on Keyes Road in the town of Antwerp. Fire officials tell 7 News a man was inside when it happened.

He was hurt, but his injuries don't appear to be serious.

"House trailer rolled several times with one individual inside," Antwerp Fire Chief Jim Allen said. "He's been taken to the hospital by a private vehicle."

Trees and wires were down throughout the area. One was blocking State Route 12 near Depauville in the town of Clayton. Crews used chainsaws and a front-end loader to clear the scene quickly.

Most people living or working in the path of the storms didn't lose power.

Isolated outages affected small numbers of people except for in the Harrisville area, where nearly 1,200 National Grid customers were without power.

Power was restored there overnight. As of around 6 a.m. Thursday, there were about 100 customers in the dark in the Cape Vincent area.

National Grid estimates power will be pack on before 8 a.m.
