The National Weather Service says spotters have reported apparent tornado damage with trees and power lines down and a home destroyed as severe thunderstorms packing high winds and large hail moved eastward through rural Schenectady and Albany counties.

The weather service posted a tornado warning until 4:30 p.m. Thursday as a fast-moving storm developed. Meteorologist John Quinlan at the National Weather Service in Albany said investigators will survey damage in the Schenectady County town of Delanson on Friday to determine if it was caused by a tornado or straight-line winds.

The storm system weakened as it moved eastward across the Hudson Valley
