FARMINGTON, New York — The National Weather Service will try to determine if a tornado caused some of the damage left behind when severe storms rolled across western New York, knocking out power to more than 10,000 utility customers.
Emergency officials say Wednesday night's high winds knocked over two barns and sent a silo nearly 300 yards into a cemetery in the town of Farmington, in northern Ontario County 15 miles southeast of Rochester.
About 12,000 homes and businesses in Ontario and neighboring Monroe County lost power. RG&E says about 5,800 remain without power Thursday, most of them in Monroe County.
No injuries were reported.
The weather service has sent a team to Farmington to determine if a tornado touched down during the storm.
