Storms Rumble in Putnam
Mother Nature rumbled through Putnam County with a vengeance Thursday evening turning day to night in a matter of minutes. Cloud to ground lightning, torrential rains and gale force winds uprooted trees in Carmel, Mahopac, Kent, Southeast and Putnam Valley, closing many roads. Homes were struck by lightning in Mahopac on Teakettle Spout Road and on Route 22 in Brewster.
