The National Weather Service (NWS) in Binghamton has concluded after a storm survey of the area in Enfield, the thunderstorm that hit on Monday evening, was a microburst with straight line winds.

Damage from the storm ended up destroying a barn, uprooting dozens of trees, flooding the area, and knocking out power to hundreds of customers. The NWS says winds speeds during the burst were estimated to be 100mph.

The length of the microburst was believed to be 2.5 miles long and a width of 1500 yards. No injuries or fatalities were reported during or after the storm.

Cleanup, though, still continues through much of the area.
