Fast-moving storms leave outages behind

National Grid is reporting about 300 outages in this area and as you can see behind me they are busy restoring power right now.

There's a downed power line here right near the Rotterdam fire station -- you can see its hanging pretty low to the ground.

No word on whether or not it's live but again, a crew is here assessing the situation.

National Grid is also reporting roughly 400 customers without power in Rotterdam and nearly 500 in Schenectady County.

Remember, these downed power lines can be very dangerous if they are still live so stay away from them and also, the black cables can be hard to see in the dark so be aware if you're out tonight.
