Weather Service issues severe thunderstorm warning

posted by Billie Owens in weather.

A severe thunderstorm warning has just been issued for Genesee County by the National Weather Service in Buffalo. It is in effect until 6:15 p.m.

At 5:21 p.m., the Doppler radar indicated a line of severe thunderstorms capable of producing damaging winds in excess of 60 mph.

These storms were located along a line extending from eight miles west of Waterport to Arcade, and moving east at 50 mph. Strong winds are pushing out ahead of this line and winds will begin prior to any rain or lightning.

Some locations in the warning include Batavia, Pavilion and Le Roy.

Wind damage with these storms will occur well ahead of any rain or lightning. Don't wait for the sound of thunder before taking cover. Seek shelter immediately inside a sturdy structure and stay away from windows.
