Heavy rainstorms and high winds that swept across the Catskills on Monday afternoon left scattered power outages in their wake.
As of around 8:30pm, Central Hudson was reporting that 1,274 of their customers in Ulster County were without power. Most heavily affected were Saugerties, with 342 outages; Lloyd, with 301 outages; Olive, with 250 outages; and Marbletown, with 158 outages.
NYSEG reported that 62 of their customers in Shandaken were without power.
Central Hudson also had 148 outages in Greene County, most in the town of Catskill, and 40 outages in the Sullivan County town of Neversink.
About 550 of NYSEG's customers in Delaware County were without power. Most of the outages -- 469 -- were in the town of Sidney, where over 20 percent of NYSEG customers were without power. Earlier in the day, the National Weather Service reported many trees and wires down in the village of Sidney.

As of 8:30pm, National Grid was not reporting any outages in Schoharie County.
