NWS: Storms leave area 'all clear' Tuesday night

Officials in Otsego, Delaware and Chenango counties reported no problems resulting from storms that passed through the area Tuesday night.

The area was ‘‘all clear,’’ according to a Facebook posting by the National Weather Service in Binghamton at about 9:30 p.m. However, the report said three people died in Madison County, southeast of Syracuse, because of high winds. Teams will survey today to determine causes of damages, the NWS said.

A line of storms moved through western and central New York bringing heavy rain and strong winds and hail that knocked down trees, power lines and several buildings across much of upstate, the Associated Press reported late Tuesday night.

The weather was being driven by a strong cold front pushing east from the Ohio Valley into warm, humid air.

As of 9 p.m., National Grid reported power outages to more than 72,000 customers in upstate New York.

More thunderstorms are possible Wednesday and into the end of the week.
