SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Gusty winds across Central New York peaked Friday afternoon, with a wind gust of 52 mph recorded at Hancock Field in North Syracuse just after 4:30 p.m.
Numerous reports of wind gusts between 40 and 50 mph came into National Weather Service offices.
The strong winds caused some trees and power lines to come down. This was video sent to us of a tree coming down on a power line in Bayberry in Onondaga County.
403 customers in Onondaga County were without power as of 8 pm.
At one point late in the afternoon, National Grid was reporting over 11,000 customers without power. By 8 p.m, the number had quickly dropped to 95 customers.
Winds will gradually diminish the rest of tonight, and a Wind Advisory that was in effect for much of Central New York was allowed to expire on time at 11 pm.
