Severe Weather Hits Southern Tier, More Storms Expected

Buffalo, NY – Sunday's rains were especially heavy in the western Southern Tier. Flooding and wind damage were reported throughout Cattaraugus and Chautauqua Counties.

In the Jamestown area, wind gusts near 60 miles an hour downed some tree limbs and power lines. Trees fell on houses in the Chautauqua County communities of Lakewood and Kennedy. Flooding was a problem in Falconer. Three-quarter inch hail fell in Randolph in Cattaraugus County. A peak wind gust of 67 miles per hour was recorded in Randolph.

The National Weather Service says more severe thunderstorms are possible across the region later Monday, when a cold front begins to move through the region. Thunderstorms with heavy rain in the one to two inch an hour range are possible.
