No confirmation of a tornado yet but there was no shortage of damage Thursday afternoon in southwestern Schenectady County and in the Helderbergs. 

A big storm system brought heavy winds, hail and in some spots, as much as three inches in diameter.  

Numerous reports of trees and wires down in and around Duanesburg, Delanson, and Altamont and at least one house has been destroyed along Route 20.  The Duanesburg Ambulance Corporation building has partially collapsed damaging two ambulances.

As of 5:30pm, power is out for more than a thousand customers from Altamont into Berne and the Helderbergs.
