The National Weather Service in Binghamton NY confirmed with a storm survey, that a tornado descended upon the Wayland area of Steuben County New York from 733 to 738 PM Monday evening, September 19, 2022.

During the survey, convergent tree damage indicative of a tornado was found starting around Buffalo Street just to the west-northwest of Wayland. This included a few trunk snaps, several uprooted trees, and numerous downed large branches. The defined narrow path of mostly tree damage continued to the east-southeast, including through the south side of Wayland itself, where winds are estimated to have reached to 90 mph before the tornado dissipated about a half mile southeast of the center of Wayland. This included a vehicle impaled by a large branch, an eyewitness account of another vehicle being moved several inches sideways on the roadway, and clean trunk snaps of two large softwood trees. Some roof damage occurred to a few residences due to being struck by trees or large branches blown around by the tornado. Other damage included collapsed fences and a crushed backyard swimming pool.
