A line of mid-day thunderstorms on Tuesday caused downed trees and several power outages in the lower Orange County area, mostly in Warwick.

According to Orange & Rockland Utilities’ outage map, after the storm, about 12 were without power in the Town of Warwick and 148 people were without power in the village. There were also power outages in Greenwood Lake and Monroe.

By Wednesday morning, only one customer was reported as still experiencing an outage in Warwick.

Warwick resident Larry Miri sent in photos of a tree down on Third Street. The tree fell on a Mercedes and knocked over telephone poles, leaving a transformer in the street.

Miri also said that he has an anemometer and recorded a wind gust of 68 mph. Nearby on Orchard Street, Warwick resident Carol Beaugard says she came to find a neighbor's tree had fallen, hit her house, and buried her husband's car parked in the driveway.

Scattered thunderstorms and showers continued in the area until 10 p.m. Tuesday night.

There were hundreds more power outages reported in Ulster and Sullivan Counties.
