Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — Utility companies were busy restoring power and deputies from the Niagara County Sheriff’s Department were out the road with Sheriff James Voutour.

”This was a fast moving, but very severe storm that came with extremely high winds and caused extensive damage to our electrical system,” said National Grid, NY President Ken Daly. “We remain in close contact with local emergency response teams and local officials as we move from damage assessment to restoration efforts (Saturday).”

The utility said it expected to have all its customers back online by Sunday.
