A violent thunderstorm raced through the region on June 3, downing wires and causing fire when lightning struck a house and barn.

Meteorologists of the National Weather Service rated the site of a destroyed home in Duanesburg to be EF3 and all other parts of the tornado’s roughly seven-mile path to be EF0 and EF1, with EF5 as the highest rating. 

Snow was piled high and displaced in any way to clear for pedestrians and cars amid the dumping of winter weather in February.

The Capital Region felt the brunt of a large winter storm on Thursday and Friday that stirred the pity of the nation as many, sometimes dozens of inches of snow covered the already buried ground. Children and their parents donned ice skates and brought sleds to the Berne Town Park on Saturday, Feb. 15, where they played and more flakes fell throughout the morning. Just a few miles away, South Berne had been given 27 inches of snow from the storm by Friday, according to the National Weather Service in Albany.
