Severe thunderstorm warning for northwestern Genesee County

posted by Billie Owens in weather.

The National Weather Service in Buffalo has issued a severe thunderstorm warning for northwestern Genesee County along with other portions of Western New York until 6:45 p.m.

The Weather Service's Doppler radar has indicated a severe thunderstorm capable of producing quarter-size hail and damaging winds in excess of 60 mph.

This storm was located near Akron, or 11 south of Medina, and it's moving northeast at 15 mph.

This is a dangerous storm. If you are in its path, prepare immediately for damaging winds, destructive hail and deadly cloud-to-ground lightning. People outside should move to a shelter, preferably inside a strong building but away from windows.
