Chenango spared Tuesday’s deadly upstate thunderstorms

CHENANGO COUNTY – Severe thunderstorms that knocked out power to thousands and caused at least one death Tuesday in northern upstate New York bypassed most of Chenango County.

Fortunately they missed most of Chenango County, said county Fire Coordinator Matt Beckwith, with minimal damage reported yesterday afternoon in the county’s southern end.
