A National Weather Service storm survey team was dispatched to
investigate damage in Ontario County, NY, from thunderstorms that
crossed the area on Friday evening, September 21, 2018. Damage
consistent with straight line winds was found in a semi-continuous

Flatiron Road in East Bloomfield to North Pearl Street in the
City of Canandaigua. The width of the damage was fairly narrow,
and the length extended about 4 linear miles crossing US Highway

of Canandaigua.
