Strong wind gusts have left thousands without power in Western New York.
The southtowns and Batavia are among the hardest hit areas. Near North Collins, the wind blew the roof off a home on Versailles Plank Road. Luckily, no one was hurt.
In Batavia, the wind caused a canopy to fall at a gas station on West Main Street and brought a live wire down on State Street, causing it to spark in the road. No one was injured in either incident.
Crews from NYSEG and National Grid are working to restore electricity.
