Scottsville hit hard by Sunday thunderstorms
Scottsville, N.Y. - Scottsville was hit hard by thunderstorms Sunday.
In the afternoon, the storms were moving up from the southwestern part of the state.
13WHAM's Justin Carter was in Scottsville during the storm and said the rain combined with the heavy wind made it difficult to see at times.
Farmers in Scottsville described to 13WHAM what it was like when the storm came rolling in.
"It's been beautiful all day long and then all of a sudden now we get this torrential downpour," said farm worker Raymer Ottman.
"It was perfect. It was hot and hazy, but it wasn't bad," added farmer Kenneth Bohn. "And then all of a sudden, it felt like needle's hitting you. That's how bad it was. It was like getting a tattoo."
Severe thunderstorm warnings and watches were cancelled throughout the area later in the evening Sunday.
