GRANT, N.Y. --- Almost a full day after a storm pushed through parts of Herkimer and Oneida Counties. Central Herkimer county continued the process of cleaning up after Friday night's storm.

As of Saturday afternoon, a few roads in the Grant and Poland area remained closed due to down power lines and trees. 

WKTV Meteorologists estimate that winds reached up to 65 MPH. As the storm moved east, winds reportedly increased to around 85 MPH.

Those high winds had many residents in Herkimer County picking up tree limbs out of their yard. Grant Road and Pardeeville road in Grant were some of the roads with the most damage.

Crews from National Grid, First Light Electric, and Nelson Tree Company spent the day repairing downed power lines and removing tree limbs from the road.

"From the porch, we saw high winds. The rain was so loud you couldn't hear the thunder. The trees were bent right over, I thought one was gonna land on my house," said Tom Colucci.

As of Saturday afternoon, just over 200 people remain without power in Herkimer County.
