A severe storm that swept through Northern Westchester late Tuesday afternoon resulted in numerous downed trees and has knocked out power to thousands of homes and businesses.

At 5:45 p.m., 6,202 NYSEG customers lost power in Northern Westchester, mainly in Bedford, Lewisboro and Pound Ridge. Con Ed reported 1,398 outages in the Northern Westchester communities it serves.

Metro-North Harlem Line service is temporarily delayed between Goldens Bridge and Chappaqua due to downed trees in the vicinity of Bedford Hills.

The severe storm prompted the National Weather Service to issue a Tornado Warning for Northern Westchester that was in effect from 4:12 p.m. until 4:45 p.m.

A Tornado Watch is in effect for all of Westchester and Putnam until midnight.

The chance for storms and showers continues through midnight.
