The travel advisory put in place Sunday afternoon in Monroe County has been lifted. Strong winds caused downed trees and utility poles and sent debris flying.

Winds caused thousands of power outages throughout the Rochester area on Sunday.

County Executive Adam Bello said crews would be working overnight to restore power and clear roadways.

As of 4:50 p.m. Monday, more than 1,900 RG&E customers in Monroe County were still without power.

Avangrid, the company that owns RG&E, says people can report power outages on its app.

The biggest concern is safety. People are advised to stay clear of downed power lines. This is especially important because the ground is saturated from melting snow. Avangrid is asking that anyone who sees downed power lines reports them immediately.

Bello is asking drivers to use caution and plan ahead for morning commutes as roads may still be obstructed and several intersections may not have working traffic lights by morning. 

The county executive says dark traffic signals should be treated as a four-way stop, as there are several intersections without working traffic lights. 

Wind gusts of 72 mph were reported at the Frederick Douglass - Greater Rochester International Airport, the seventh-strongest recorded.
