The falling limbs have taken down power lines throughout Orleans County, leaving thousands of residents without power, National Grid reported.

The outages are spread throughout the county, with about 1,000 homes in both Albion and Medina without electricity, as well as pockets of power outages in most towns.

National Grid reports it is assessing the conditions. In some cases the power company has a crew assigned, but doesn’t for all of the outages.
