CHENANGO COUNTY – A powerful storm blew through Chenango County Thursday night, beginning around 6 p.m. With thunder, lightning, wind and hail, the storm brought down trees and power lines leaving some county residents without power.
According to Emergency Management Officer A. Wesley Jones, the majority of the storm’s damage was located between Norwich and Oxford.
“We had trees down, tree limbs and power lines in the roads,” he said. A portion of county Rt. 32 – from just south of Norwich to the Halfway House – area was closed for a short period of time to allow workers to remove debris from the road.
