Storm Causes Damage and Power Outages Across Region
by News

Many are getting a first hand look at the overnight damage due to the storms.
A lot you may have heard the loud thunder and saw the lightning Friday night. Ron Henry from Gates saw the damage it caused for the first time Saturday morning.

"They called me and told me a tree fell on the house," said Henry. "And then I looked at it this morning, the first time I saw it this morning and I says whoa I says this is unbelievable."

Henry says he was at work when he got that call from his wife, that a tree came crashing down onto his Gates home. He says the tree fell through the roof of his daughter's bedroom, who was not home at the time. His garage was also taken out and his motorcycle inside was damaged.

He is one of several homeowners waking up to see the aftermath of last night's storm.

So far RG&E is reporting that more than 15,000 people are without power. That incudes more than 5,000 in Monroe County, and more than 4,000 in Wayne County.

For Henry the cleanup process is starting, he says he's just thankful no one was hurt.

"I couldn't imagine what it would have been like if my daughter was here," said Henry. "It would have been panic. It would have been a nightmare."

Livingston County also has nearly 3000 customers without power.
