TOMPKINS COUNTY, N.Y. -- Many people in Tompkins County were without power Thursday evening after a severe thunderstorm passed through the area.
Just after 8 p.m., 6.000 customers were without power throughout the Southern Tier, more than 2,000 of which were in Tompkins County.
The storm produced heavy rain and hail.
In Newfield, the fire department responded to a tree down and NYSEG dealt with downed wires.
We are told there is no major damage and most of the power has since been restored.
