Update 3:15 p.m. Wednesday: Consolidated Edison reports 82 customers do not have power in Sleepy Hollow, Irvington and Tarrytown because of downed wires and pole damage. 

TARRYTOWN, N.Y. – Heavy rain and wind knocked down several trees and cut off power in limited areas of Tarrytown, Sleepy Hollow and Irvington Tuesday afternoon, but the area was largely unaffected by the storms.

Tarrytown reported the most damage.

“Between 4 p.m. and 8 p.m., we had reports of four trees down, plus numerous reports of smaller branches in the roadways” Tarrytown Police Lt. William Herguth said.

Herguth said a tree hit a building at 224 S. Broadway and that the wind blew a fence from the new tennis courts at Pierson Park onto 10 cars, causing minor damage. No injuries were reported during the storm.

Sleepy Hollow police said a few trees came down, but no major damage occurred. Sgt. Andrew Bessinger said Irvington was not hit hard by the storm.
