More strong storms move across upstate NY

By ASSOCIATED PRESS

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - A line of storms moved through western and central New York bringing heavy rain and strong winds and hail that knocked down trees, power lines and several buildings across much of upstate.
   
The National Weather Service issued a severe thunderstorm watch for central New York and the Southern Tier and says rain could cause flash flooding in the eastern part of the state into Tuesday night.
   
The weather is being driven by a strong cold front pushing east from the Ohio Valley into warm, humid air.
   
As of 9 p.m., National Grid reported power outages to over 72,000 customers in upstate New York.
   
More thunderstorms are possible Wednesday and into the end of the week.
