Some Previous Reports Issued Prematurely:
Power Restoration Continues across GLOW after Weekend Storm Ends

Additional utility crews are arriving this afternoon and tonight to help with power restoration efforts, a National Grid spokesman told GLOW Region's The Daily News on Sunday afternoon.

“All of them will be ready to immediately support our efforts in the GLOW Region tonight and into tomorrow,” said spokesman David Bertola.

Previously in some reports, Wyoming and Livingston counties were listed as free of lingering outages, not because they were, but because the information was omitted somewhere along the way.

More than 11,000 utility customers in the four-county GLOW region remain without power as of 4:30 p.m. Sunday as crews continue efforts to restore power after high winds brought down utility poles and trees on Sunday.

National Grid estimates that power restoration in Western New York will be complete for 90% of affected customers by 11:30 p.m. Monday, though some restoration may extend into late Tuesday in some of the hardest hit and more difficult areas, which includes Genesee and Orleans counties where some of the strongest winds and greatest damage were recorded.

“This storm brought with it powerful, damaging winds that lasted a long time, and caused us to begin restoration work in some areas today, rather than yesterday,” Bertola said.

National Grid support teams will distribute dry ice and bottled water in Batavia on Monday. The distribution is scheduled from noon to 4 p.m. at the City of Batavia Fire Department, 18 Evans St., Batavia, from noon to 4 p.m. today. Employees on site will provide information about proper handling of dry ice. Customers are asked to bring a shopping bag or small cooler to transport it.

There were 5,615 National Grid customers without power in Orleans County as of 4:30 p.m. Sunday, and an additional 4,212 National Grid customers out in Genesee County. National Grid is [now] also reporting 1,284 customers in Wyoming County without power, and 23 in Livingston County.

Statewide, National Grid has restored power to nearly 180,000 of the estimated 215,000 customers affected by the storm.

Among other utility companies, NYSEG was reporting 168 customers in Wyoming County and seven in Livingston County did not have power, while RG&E said it had nine customers in Wyoming County without power.

The four utilities reported a total of 64,656 customers without power across its New York service areas as of 4:30 p.m.

In the National Grid service area, the storm left behind at least 225 broken utility poles – including more than 70 in Genesee and Orleans counties; 100 damaged transformers and hundreds of toppled trees, tree limbs and downed wires.

Among the hardest hit were areas along the shores of Lakes Erie and Ontario, including Erie, Genesee, Niagara, Monroe, Oswego, Lewis and St. Lawrence counties.

“There were many emergent situations that needed addressing, which meant that in many areas of our service territory, we had to make them safe before we began our work,” Bertola said. Among those areas with emergent situations were Genesee and Orleans counties, he said.

Crews have been working around the clock since the storm began to restore power. National Grid is supported by crews from National Grid New England, and crews from North Carolina, South Carolina, West Virginia, Michigan, Indiana, Virginia and Ontario.

Kirk Apffel, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Buffalo, said today that most of the reports the NWS has received from Genesee, Wyoming and Orleans counties from Saturday are about trees, wires and poles down.

“We also had numerous reports of damage, mainly trees down across the region. There’s multiple reports of trees across Genesee County from the strong winds,” he said. “In Orleans County, we did get at least one report of shingles blown off a roof. There’s a portion of the siding of a building blown off down in Albion. That was yesterday at approximately 4 o’clock.”

Original story, 11 a.m. Sunday:
More than 16,000 utility customers in the four-county GLOW region remained without power as of about 11 a.m. as crews continue efforts to restore power after high winds brought down utility poles and trees on Saturday.

In many areas, utilities are continuing to assess conditions, while those areas with estimated restoration times range from 3:15 p.m. to 10 p.m.

In Le Roy, severe tree damage was reported at Machpeleah Cemetery, which has prompted the closure of the cemetery. It is expected to remain closed for quite a while.

Kirk Apffel, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Buffalo, said today that most of the reports the NWS has received from Genesee, Wyoming and Orleans counties from Saturday are about trees, wires and poles down.

“We also had numerous reports of damage, mainly trees down across the region. There’s multiple reports of trees across Genesee County from the strong winds,” he said. “In Orleans County, we did get at least one report of shingles blown off a roof. There’s a portion of the siding of a building blown off down in Albion. That was yesterday at approximately 4 o’clock.”

Apffel said the forecast for this afternoon in Batavia is for sunny weather with a high in the lower 40s.

“It‘s going to be breezy, but nothing like it was yesterday. We’re looking at wind gusts of about 35 mph this afternoon,” he said. “Tonight, it’s going to be partly cloudy with lows in the upper 30s. It’s still going to be breezy. You’re going to have winds gusting up to 35 mph overnight.”

A total of 16,424 utility customers in the GLOW region are without power as of 11 a.m. today.

Orleans County continues to have the most customers without power at 7,849, according to National Grid. This represents an increase from 11 p.m. Saturday, but is down from more than 8,000 earlier Saturday.

In Genesee County, there are 6,611 National Grid customers without power, down from nearly 8,200 late Saturday.

National Grid support teams will be distributing dry ice and bottled water at the City of Batavia Fire Department, 18 Evans St., Batavia, from noon to 4 p.m. today. Employees on site will provide information about proper handling of dry ice. Customers are asked to bring a bag or cooler to transport it

[In Livingston County, National Grid reports 173 customers without power, while NYSEG has 17 customers in the county without power and RG&E has 5.]

[Wyoming County has nearly 1,800 utility customers without power, including 1,283 from National Grid and 491 from NYSEG.]

National Grid said Sunday it had more than 3,300 workers active across upstate New York removing downed wires, trees, tree limbs, broken poles and other hazards. Crews have been working around the clock and, as of 10 a.m., have restored power to nearly 148,000 of the more than 215,000 customers impacted by the storm. Hardest hit were areas along the shores of Lake Erie and Lake Ontario, including Erie, Genesee, Niagara, Monroe, Oswego, Lewis and St. Lawrence counties, the utility said.

RG&E said it has more than 2,000 field personnel engaged in storm response efforts statewide. To bolster restoration efforts, RG&E is expanding its workforce with crews from its sister companies, United Illuminating and Central Maine Power and mutual aid crews from unaffected utilities and municipalities.

A peak wind gust of 76 mph was recorded Saturday near Genesee Community College. It was one of the top wind gusts in the region, according to data from the National Weather Service.

Gusty winds between 25 and 40 mph are expected today, with the strongest gusts near the lakes, the Weather Service said.

If outside cleaning after yesterday’s -windstorm, wind gusts may be able to knock any remaining loose tree limbs free, so use caution. Temperatures will be around 20 degrees cooler, according to the Weather Service.

W. PETE MAIRS
Walter D. “Pete” Mairs, 81, died peacefully on July 23, 2021. Born in Avon, N.Y., on Sept. 3, 1939, Pete was a longtime resident of Geneva, N.Y., and these past many years in Buffalo, N.Y., as well as his beloved Silver Lake. Pete is survived by his wife, Linda Bergstrom Mairs, a loving and true companion; children, Mimi C. Mairs, Jonathan B. Mairs; sisters, June Huff, Helen Dole; brother, Thomas Mairs; stepchildren, Daniel Brinkworth, Jennie Ramsey; sister-in-law, Anne Bergstrom, eight beautiful grandchildren, and nieces and nephews. A service and celebration of life is planned for the fall when all can share the joy of Pete’s life together. Arrangements by Stephenson – Dougherty Funeral Home, Avon, N.Y.

Editor's Note: It was a privilege knowing and working with Pete Mairs during his presidency of the Silver Lake Institute. He was a kind and gentle man, but also firm in his leadership. I served as Treasurer and Chaplain of SLI during those years and I could always depend on Pete's presence in the worship service. He was a man of faith and a gem of a human being. May he rest in God's care.

KATHARINE E. PRACZKAJLO ("Kathy P.")

KATHARINE E. PRACZKAJLO ("Kathy P.")
"Kathy P." passed November 8, 2021, of Hamburg and Boston, NY. Beloved daughter of Joseph and Barbara Michalak; loving sister of Daniel Michalak; devoted wife of the late Jeffrey Praczkajlo; cherished mother of Jennifer (Shawn) Jump; loving babcia of Lily Jump; also survived by many beloved family members and friends who became her family. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.

Editor's Note: "Kathy P." as she was better known to us at Silver Lake was an annual summer visitor for most of the last number of years at the invitation of Silver Laker Julia Hoffner. She stayed at the Hoffner Cottage, and became known as both the fun visitor with the vivacious smile to the neighbors at the intersection of Haven Ave. and the Ames Walkway. Kathy P. and Julie could be seen walking and talking between the cottage and the Hoffner boathouse where they could be close to the water. She was also occasionally seen at the Saturday morning breakfasts at Stoody Hall. Her stay was anywhere between 4 days and a week where she had the opportunity to develop a love for Silver Lake. She was not yet eligible for retirement when late last week she developed "a cold" and had to remain home from her job. She did not update her condition over the weekend so the local police made a wellness visit and found her deceased on Monday. She was one of those many people who found Silver Lake and friendship for brief respites where she also found new strength and energy to return to work. She is being particularly mourned by those in the Haven/Ames neighborhood. She will be memorialized next summer at the annual Celebration of Life Memorial Service at Epworth Hall.
