Readers share photos from the storm
Orleans Hub readers had the cameras out Tuesday evening when the sky turned dark and a severe thunderstorm invaded the area.
Pamela Moore of Barre took the top picture when the storm started to hit at about 7:30 p.m.
Lori Laine of Albion was driving on Route 98 in Carlton when power poles fell over. “The wires landed on my car right in front of the Ho-Jack !!” she said. “I am lucky to be alive!!!”
After the storm went through, knocking down trees and power lines, the sky turned a brilliant orange. Greg Stanton of Medina took this picture from his back yard on East Avenue in Medina.
The storm left thousands without power. A Waterport woman sent in this photo of fallen trees. She had five big tree limbs land on her house.
