...Summary... an updated statement has been sent to call this event a macroburst... instead of a microburst. The path length...path width...and long duration nature of this event better fits the definition of a macroburst.

The National Weather Service in Binghamton, NY has confirmed a macroburst /straight line wind damage/ from East Syracuse in Onondaga County New York...to near Trenton Falls in Oneida County New York on July 8 2014.

More concentrated wind damage began in the Village of East Syracuse on east Avenue. Tree damage was widespread and consisted mainly of downed large trees...some uproots...and a few snapped power poles. No structural damage was evident...except when caused by fallen trees. Thus...estimated wind speeds are in the 65 to 75 mph range at this location.

Sporadic damage continued towards the east northeast along State Route 298 across Lakeport Road...north Peterboro street...and State Highway 31. A barn was damaged at the intersection of Buck street and Judd point Road in Durhamville. Wind speeds in this area remained consistently in the 65 to 75 mph range.

Damage continued farther northeastward until a more concentrated and extensive damage area was found in New London...extending from near the New London fire station on Cornell street through glur Road and Rome-New London Road...approximately 5 miles southwest of the city of Rome. Please refer to a separate public information statement for more specific information on the damage in New London.

Sporadic damage then continued towards the east northeast...through the city of Rome. Damage within the city of Rome consisted of some branches down and a few uprooted trees. Winds here...supported by the observation at Griffiss Air Force Base...were in the 60 to 70 mph range.

Sporadic damage likely continued towards the east northeast to the Oneida Herkimer County line...near Trenton Falls.

This information can also be found on our website at weather.Gov/bgm.

For reference... a macroburst is a convective downdraft with an affected outflow area of at least 2 1/2 miles wide and peak winds lasting between 5 and 20 minutes. Intense macrobursts may cause tornado-force damage of up to EF3 intensity. Straight-line winds are generally any wind that is not associated with rotation...used mainly to differentiate them from tornadic winds.
