The Town of Smithfield was the hardest hit in Madison County after severe storms ripped through the area.

At least four homes were destroyed. Governor Cuomo is in Smithfield surveying the damage.

Severe damage along Goff Road in Smithfield forced the Madison County Sheriffâ??s Department to close the road from Buyea Road and North Butler Road. Northrup Road is also closed to all traffic in the immediate area.

The damage is widespread in the towns of Sullivan and Lenox, with trees and wires knocked down in the powerful winds.
