Road closure

County Line Road, which runs along the border between the towns of Kingsbury and Queensbury, was closed on Wednesday night by downed lines.

Fire departments and utility crews were kept busy by damage from storms that rolled through the area on Wednesday evening.

There were dozens of reports of trees and power lines brought down by the storms, which hit the Glens Falls area just before 7 p.m. Some roads were closed and power went out in a few areas.

Most of Warren and Washington counties were under a severe thunderstorm warning from the National Weather Service at the time.

Several locations lost power, according to National Grid's outage map. One area centering on West Fort Ann showed 1,821 customers were without power. Several hundred customers were affected in Saratoga Springs in the vicinity of East Side Recreation Park and more than 100 homes were affected in the Lake Luzerne area.

By midnight, power had been restored to most customers. Only a handful of homes were still off the grid by early Thursday morning.

Numerous fire departments responded to tree, pole and power line damage in communities from Saratoga to Lake George. Some roads were temporarily closed as a result of storm damage, including County Line Road on the border of Queensbury and Kingsbury, where there were multiple reports of storm damage.

Emergency personnel were still dealing with scattered damage reports well into the evening.
