BUFFALO, NY--   A line of strong to severe thunderstorms moved through Western New York Saturday night.

Doppler radar indicated rotation within one severe storm which prompted a Tornado warning for portions of Cattaraugus and McKean counties for a short time.

Law enforcement initially reported spotting a possible tornado near Peterson Road, just north of Scandia, at the border of McKean and Warren counties.

In Chautauqua County, the Sheriff's Office says they have reports of trees and wires down near Westfield, Portland and Dunkirk.  There is also reports of minor flooding on some roadways.

There are few power outages caused by the storm.  As of 9pm, nearly 100 NYSEG in East Aurora and West Seneca are without power.  Over 700 National Grid customers in Amherst and Buffalo are also without power at this time
