On Monday 6/18/18 at approximately 7:30pm, a quick strong thunderstorm occurred in our district, which caused numerous incidents within minutes. The calls ranged from tree/wires down, trees down on residences, and a transformer explosion/fire from a direct lightning strike. Con Edison Electric, Yorktown Police Department, New York State Police, also assisted units at the scenes. The American Red Cross was also requested to assist with emergency shelter for a resident in Jefferson Village due to the building being inhabitable from a tee that fell on it causing significant structural damage.
