Arkwright, NY – The National Weather Service confirmed Thursday that a tornado touched down in Chautauqua County Wednesday afternoon.

The tornado touched down at 12:06 p.m. and moved from the town of Arkwright to the town of Hanover, traveling 3 miles at a maximum speed of 110 mph, according to the National Weather Service.

Its maximum width was measured at 137 meters.

A video posted on social media from Arkwright, south-west of Eden, shows the roof of a house being dramatically ripped off and thrown into the garden.

In the nearby town of Forestville, observers reported fallen trees and a barn roof blown off near the intersection of Straight Road and Zahm Road. Trees, a pole and power lines were also down.

Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz declared a state of emergency in the town of Eden, about a half-hour south of Buffalo, after the remnants of Hurricane Beryl brought strong winds that devastated homes, farms and roads.

At the height of the storms, more than 25,000 power outages were reported in Erie County. Most of those customers had power restored by 7 a.m. Thursday morning, leaving only 143 customers without power, almost all in Eden.
