Can't like that...wishing you safety from the winds as well. Town over...man lost his life from a falling tree. 😞 It's serious...no letting up wind. Trees aren't standing up to the consistent winds. Several without power...and more mentioning it on social media. Trees are toppling all over the place.
If it turns out anywhere near the forecast there will be over 100,000 customers without power in the Rochester area alone,
many for multiple days. That's what happened with the big storm in March 2017 and the duration of winds was much
shorter, though perhaps peak gusts were a little stronger (81 mph at Rochester officially). We'll see what happens. Fingers crossed.
Destroyed a substation in one area. Many without power. Snapped telephone poles in down town area...took down a "huge" oak tree near the neighbors. So large that it shook our windows when it hit the ground. I actually thought it was a tree in our ravine it seemed so close. No structural damage to our place though. Checked for holes in the siding...because we had the house battered with branches. It was horrid...Glad the worst is over...now only 30-45 mph we are seeing now. So nothing extreme after that. But we got through it...
