LATEST UPDATE: Tornado Warnings Around the Finger Lakes

The strongest thunderstorms capable of producing tornadoes that prompted more than a half dozen tornado warnings across the Western Finger Lakes between 1:30 and 3 p.m. have moved into Central New York.

The look of skies between Gorham and Geneva as a tornado-warned storm moved through the area.

The National Weather Service is continuing a Tornado Watch until 9 p.m., which means storms that develop will still have the potential to cause damage via straight-line wins or even spin-up tornadoes. Frequent lightning and heavy rain will also be common across these storms.
