HUDSON, N.Y. -- The city of Hudson is no longer in a state of emergency after severe weather knocks out power to several thousand people in the area. Power was restored to residents early on Saturday.

People said they were not expecting this kind of weather or to lose their power. The Hudson Police Department said every street light in the city went out. The police department and hospital were running on generators.

According to residents, cars were damaged from the strong winds and golfball size hail. Some businesses now face an uphill battle because of the severe weather.

Police said that although this was more than a wind storm, they are not sure if was severe enough to be classified as a tornado.
