Groton, N.Y. — A major thunderstorm passed through the Tompkins County town of Groton Wednesday night but does not appear to have done any major damage.

“It was a little hectic there for a few minutes, but we had plenty of help,” an official in the Groton Fire Department said.

Groton firefighters were called to 14 reports of wires and trees down in the area. Around 900 customers lost power Wednesday evening, according to NYSEG.

The National Weather Service had issued a severe thunderstorm warning for northern Tompkins County. But it doesn’t appear there’s been much serious damage.

“No injuries, no house damage,” the Groton firefighter said.

The Groton firefighter said he thought the town had seen the worst of the Wednesday night thunderstorm, but wasn’t sure. Lansing responders were reportedly called to around six incidents.
