Wind topples trees, cuts power in upstate NY

ALBANY (AP) – Utility crews are working to fix scattered power outages affecting about 12,000 customers in eastern New York after a line of storms spawned by a cold front produced heavy rains and high winds.

The National Weather Service had issued a tornado watch and high wind advisories until 5 p.m. Monday for much of upstate New York. The service in Albany said peak gust in Glens Falls was 48 mph just ahead of the line of storms. Rainfall was less than an inch in Albany.

The weather service had no reports of tornadoes from the storms.
