Madison County- Last night around 8:15 P.M., a severe thunderstorm hit the towns of Madison and Bouckville. This storm brought heavy rains and strong winds with gusts getting up to 60 mph. This caused for many downed trees and several downed power lines.

This damage prompted the closure of route 20 in both directions between route 46 and route 12-B as authorities worked to clear the roads and restore power. The road has reopened this morning but some residents remain without power.

"There were a lot of trees that came down on power lines, the storm brought down power lines, it brought down power poles. In one incident a roof of a residence was partially lifted off," said Madison County Emergency Management Agency Director Ted Halpin about the damage he saw while out surveying.

The National Weather Service in Binghamton is heading out to the affected areas today to conduct a storm survey and try to conclude if the damage was just caused from strong winds or a weak tornado.
