As of Tuesday morning, there were still a little more than 1,000 people without power across the Finger Lakes region where strong and severe thunderstorms wreaked havoc yesterday afternoon.

The storm damage reports were contained to limbs, trees, and utility poles, but that was enough.

As of 5 a.m. there were approximately 800 households without power in Seneca County, around 260 without power in Cayuga and Yates counties each, and another 260 in the dark in Schuyler. Approximately 122 households were still without power in Ontario County.

While today doesn’t feature as much of a severe thunderstorm threat – it doesn’t completely go away. Especially for readers in the eastern portion of the Finger Lakes. Like yesterday, as the atmosphere heats up in the afternoon, showers and thunderstorms will pop – creating the potential for more issues.

However, the bigger threat with today’s storms will be heavy rain and the risk for minor flooding where storms develop.
