BUFFALO, N.Y. — A line of powerful thunderstorms has moved out of Western New York Thursday afternoon with strong winds, torrential rain and continuous lightning.

The National Weather Service office in Buffalo has received many reports of downed trees and a few reports of power line issues in Chautauqua and Genesee counties. Flooding is also being reported in Le Roy and Batavia in Genesee county after persistent strong storms dropped 2 to 3 inches of rain in a short span of time.

Overall, things will be significantly quieter Thursday evening and overnight. Use caution if you are driving through flooded regions and remember never to drive through a flooded roadway.

Another round of rain is on the way for late Friday night and Saturday morning as remnants from hurricane Laura move through the Northeast.
