The fast-moving storms that hit Port Chester on Friday and Sunday left a trail of damage the including eight cars that were struck by trees or tree limbs, according to Port Chester police.
Port Chester police on Tuesday came up with a tally of the damage from the storms. It took them some time to do that because Sunday's storm knocked out power to more than 500 Con Ed customers in Port Chester, including the police department.
Although no one was hurt in the storms, here's the tally of the damage:
- 8 cars damaged
- 11 trees fell in the storms
- Utility wires were knocked down at 7 locations in the village.
The storms kept Port Chester police and firefighters busy responding to emergency calls. The closest call, according to police, was at 8 p.m. on Sunday on Terrace Avenue.
A car parked in the driveway of 145 Terrace Ave. was struck by a tree that fell from 151 Terrace Ave. At the time, there were two Port Chester woman, ages 58 and 43, in that 2009 Toyota Coralla.
Police said the car was heavily damaged by the tree and the two women were trapped in the car. However, they were not injured.
Emergency crews were able to lift the tree so the Toyota could move forward, and the women could get out of the car.
In neighboring Greenwich, CT, most of the community was left without power on Monday because of a large tree that hit key power lines.
