ERIE COUNTY, NY — Rochester’s western neighbors were hit by two tornadoes Wednesday afternoon as the remnants of former Hurricane Beryl spawned storms that brought downpours, strong winds and lightning.

The National Weather Service confirmed that an EF0 and EF1 tornado touched down in Erie and Chautauqua counties. No tornadoes were confirmed in the Rochester area.

The EF1’s peak wind speeds reached over 100 miles per hour and the storm was 500 feet wide. Trees were uprooted and roofs were blown off buildings.

The National Weather Service in Buffalo set a record for the most warnings in one day on Wednesday, with 18 warnings. There were 38 tornado warnings in New York State on Wednesday, the second highest number of warnings in one day. Only May 1999 saw more warnings issued.

A tornado warning means that there is a threat of a tornado in a specific area and for a specific period of time. There have also been many tornado warnings, which means that conditions could be favorable for an isolated tornado.

There have been over a dozen reports of storm damage in the Rochester area, but so far there have been no reports of injuries.
