BROCKPORT, N.Y. (WHEC)- Despite continued high winds, power crews were hard at work on Sunday trying to cut or restore power when possible.

At one location on Clark Road, gusty winds had completely uprooted a tree and it came down into the side of a house. The limbs then got caught up in the power lines.

"It was like a truck tried to drive through the house, we ran," said Kevin Gardner, homeowner. " Our daughter was upstairs so we made sure she was okay and we came running outside and there it is...I was getting ready to go into the kitchen though because I was going to make a cheesecake." 

Although there was structural damage, no one was injured.

It was a scary situation and not an isolated one.

About two miles away, on Valley View Drive, another tree uprooted and then came down into a house. There was no structural damage, but the tree will have to be removed once the power to nearby lines is cut.

National Grid serves this area and responded in both cases within a half an hour.  

The College at Brockport was without power for a short time but later regained it, although they are not sure if it is permanent. Hundreds more in Brockport remained without power as of Sunday night.
