Power restored after Friday's storm in Westchester Co.

According to officials from the National Weather Service, the Ossining area saw 80 mph winds classifying Friday's storm as microburst activity and not a tornado.

Trees and power lines were scattered along Route 9 in Ossining and a 100 foot-long maple tree was brought down near Piping Rock Drive.

Meanwhile, in Orange County, the National Weather Service determined that an F-1 tornado struck with wind speeds reaching up to 112 mph.

After the tornado hit, the storm weakened as it made its way to Westchester. Residents who have lived in the region for years all agree that they had never seen a storm of such force strike the area.

At the height of the storm 3,500 people were without power in Ossining but by late Saturday night everyone had their electricity back on.
