NWS investigates radar showing “confirmed tornado”


(WBNG) -- The National Weather Service in Binghamton is investigating what appeared to be a "tornadic debris signature", also known as a TDS, as a tornado-warned storm moved over eastern Delaware County.

At 2:10 p.m., the National Weather Service stated: "a confirmed tornado was located near Roxbury, or 16 miles west of Hunter, moving southeast at 50 mph."

However, the NWS says it is now looking to see if the radar showed the TDS. The NWS says they have not confirmed a tornado.

According to the Delaware County (NY) Department of Emergency Services, the office "does NOT have a confirmation of a tornado touching down in the Town of Roxbury." The office also stated it has not received any calls from people who live in the area.

"It is entirely possible a touch down occurred in a wooded area and it didn't effect any infrastructure, utilities or homes," the DCDEM stated on Facebook.

The Delaware County Sheriff's Office also stated it received no reports of damage.

As of 3:45 p.m., nearly 1,000 NYSEG customers are without power as storms pass through our area Thursday afternoon.

According to the NYSEG Power Outage Map, the majority of the power outages are in Deposit.
