ELMIRA, N.Y. -- At least 16 houses have been declared uninhabitable in the aftermath of a tornado strike in Elmira.
Chemung County emergency management director Michael Smith says state and federal inspectors will continue to assess storm damage until early next week.
The tornado touched down about 4 p.m. Thursday packing winds of up to 110 mph. It was part of a strong storm system that punished much of the northeast on Thursday.
There were no reports of injuries in Elmira.
The utility NYSEG said 13,468 homes and businesses were still without power Saturday afternoon. Most of those were in the Elmira area.

A row of broken power lines reveal the path that a tornado took after it struck Elmira N.Y., Thursday, July 26, 2012.
In Pennsylvania, meteorologists have confirmed a tornado touched down in northern Pennsylvania during powerful storms that knocked out power to thousands statewide.
The National Weather Service says a twister with winds of 80 mph touched down Thursday afternoon near Coudersport, Potter County.
Later that night, authorities say a woman was killed by a falling tree. The Potter County coroner says 66-year-old Linda Button died in Genesee Township, about 150 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.
First Energy Corp. reports that about 24,000 customers in western and northern Pennsylvania were still without power Friday night. Numbers had been much higher earlier in the day.
The high winds tore the roof off a volunteer fire hall in Butler County. In Cambria County, WJAC-TV in Johnstown had its Thursday evening newscast knocked off the air by lightning.
In total, four tornadoes have been confirmed in the wake of the storms.
