LOCKPORT, NY (WKBW) - Road after road in Lockport is a mangled mess of trees and branches brought down by thick ice.

Power is out throughout the region, with Niagara County residents hit the hardest.

Some customers will be without power until Monday evening.

All 28 volunteer fire companies in the county were called out to help with the post-storm cleanup.

"We're pumping hundreds of basements," said Niagara County Sheriff James Voutour.
