You can check the status of your power (and possible restoration times) at the links below:
As of 10:30 pm, NYSEG shows over 900 customers without power, and National Grid shows over 3,000. Of those with the latter service, Germantown, Livingston and Taghkanic appear to have the most outages.
The storm at this point has an erratic, volatile feel to it. For a half-hour this evening, it was quiet and dry, and stars could be seen through breaks in the rapidly-moving clouds overhead.
Here are some of the tips that have come in so far, but at this point they are too numerous to mention:
- Power is out in the Glenco Mills area as of 8 pm, with sparks seen flying off a pole on Old Route 82;
- A downed tree and power line closed Route 22 in Hillsdale near Route 21 around 5 pm, according to a Philmont resident; UPDATE: Officials say 22 is back open;
- Multiple trees down on Route 28 have knocked power out in parts of Kinderhook, according to Columbia County 911.
- Power went out around Churchtown a bit before 9 pm;
- On Facebook, Columbia County 911 reported the closure around 11:30 pm of Route 9 between County Route 10 and Maple Lane in Livingston, due to “several power poles down,” saying that this “will be an extended closure.”

UPDATE: As of Tuesday morning, it's breezy but calm and mostly dry here in Taghkanic. Seems we were mostly spared.
