Trees, Power Lines Down

Heavy winds are already causing some problems in the Twin Tiers.

Several trees, tree branches and power lines have been reported down in McKean, Cattaraugus and Warren counties. Police are advising motorists to use caution, and are asking people to stay away from the downed wires.

Gusts of up to 60 miles per hour are expected this afternoon, according to News 4 Meteorologist Mike Cejka.

So far, the highest gust recorded at our weather station on St. Francis Drive was 34 miles per hour.
