I am a witness and will have images of the downed trees. The images will (I took some pictures) will come tomorrow as I imagine I will have quite a few and given the damage just outside my door, there may be a lot of pictures. I might have witness statements later as well. Jason Safoutin 00:58, 13 October 2006 (UTC)

We have had light snowfall accumalation mainly on roofs and cars. Also school closings have been posted in areas of Genessee and Ontario counties. --- Anthony Ward

Channel 2 has just reported the number of people without power is now 300,000, as I'm a Wikinews noob, how would I go about sourcing a newscast? --Lightdarkness 13:31, 13 October 2006 (UTC)

I've added the information, let me know if there is anything else I should be doing [1] --Lightdarkness 13:43, 13 October 2006 (UTC)
