LATEST: Damaging winds batter the region, gusts to 60 mph still possible

Power outages, damage to trees, and difficult travel. All three made headlines as strong winds battered the Finger Lakes, Western New York, and Central New York over the last 24 hours.

The National Weather Service had issued a High Wind Warning for the entire region. It covered almost all of Upstate New York. While some strong winds will still be possible during the day on Monday – things will begin settling down as the day progresses. The Wind Warnings will expire this afternoon and evening.

Widespread power outages were observed around the Finger Lakes.

Governor Andrew Cuomo banned empty tractor trailers from the New York State Thruway throughout the event. That ban runs from Exit 31 in Utica to Exit 61 in Ripley. There are also bans on those vehicles across I-490, I-590, I-390, and at State Route 104 at the Bay Bridge. This expires at the end of the day today.
