ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) – The National Weather Service out of Buffalo deemed the thunderstorm wind damage in Livingston County to be caused by straight line winds.

The team surveyed the damage in several spots across the county, and determined the storm that downed trees, power lines and toppled a silo was not a tornado. Rather, the damage was caused by straight line downburst winds, estimated at 100 mph.

The path of the damage was about 8 miles long, and 400 yards wide. The storm cut a path from Geneseo to Livonia. Despite widespread damage, no injuries or fatalities were reported with this storm. The same storm also produced golf ball sized hail in Ontario County.
