Flooding, power outages reported in Ontario, Seneca counties after severe storms roll through on Sunday

It was another day of strong thunderstorms for parts of the Finger Lakes on Sunday, as storms moved through – causing downed trees, power outages, and street flooding.

This was particularly the case in Ontario and Seneca counties, who were hardest hit by an afternoon cell, which was severe warned by the National Weather Service.

Radar estimates indicated that upwards of 2-inches of rain was falling inside the storm.

Photos from Geneva showed the street flooding, which took place after two consecutive days of strong afternoon thunderstorms. Tree limbs were also reported down around the city, as that cell moved through.

The National Weather Service had been reporting throughout the day that strong storms would be possible during the afternoon. Damaging winds and hail were the biggest concerns.
