There were no injuries reported.

The struggle to catch the leopard went on for over 9 hours where all the commotion led to the wild animal attacking over 6 villagers.

Lightning struck a house in Solvay while the owner was inside. (No one was hurt.) An elevator at Destiny USA halted momentarily as the power flickered, one witness said. Rain was so intense that even with wipers on high, motorists had a hard time seeing. One Solvay resident reported pea-sized hail.

National Grid reported several scattered outages in Lyncourt and Liverpool, affecting about 2,500 customers.

The snow amounts in California's Sierra Nevada mountain range this winter are difficult to wrap your head around. In many cases topping 500 inches, they are some of the highest totals in memory.
At the Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows resort, seven feet fell in just the past week. The snow is so high that it buried chairlifts and ski patrol shacks.
