SURVEY SUMMARY:

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN BINGHAMTON NY CONFIRMED WITH A

WHERE TREES FELL IN A CONVERGENT PATTERN. TALKING TO SEVERAL 
RESIDENTS, WINDS CAME FROM MULTIPLE DIRECTIONS, WITH LAWN FURNITURE
AND PART OF A DECK RAILING BLOWN NORTHWEST WHILE TREES IN 
THE BACK YARD WERE BLOWN DOWN FACING SOUTHWEST. SPORADIC TREE 
DAMAGE WAS FOLLOWED DOWN TO ROUTE 10 TO AN AUTOSHOP WITH SOME 
METAL SHEETING RIPPED OFF OF THE ROOF AND THROWN ABOUT A 100

OF THE DELAWARE RIVER ALONG S RIVER RD. SPORADIC TREE DAMAGE 
CONTINUED ALONG THE SOUTH SHORE OF THE RIVER TO JUST SOUTH OF S
