Strong storms in Ontario County leave trail of significant wind damage (photos)

Severe thunderstorms rolled through Ontario County on Sunday bringing damaging winds and heavy rain.

While there was no updates from the National Weather Service in Buffalo on what happened — significant damage was noted through photos around parts of the Route 332 corridor. Some local meteorologists did not rule out a microburst.

Trees were uprooted, fences were blown over, and large non-permanent structures in residents’ yards were tipped.

A central air conditioning unit, which was setup on the ground along a home – was tipped over due to the force of the wind.

A large swing set and backyard playground was also tipped over due to the wind.
