It was the strongest October winds near summer-like storm ever in New York, the Capital District. More than 200 000 people stayed without power after storm and were reported untraditionally widespread damages.

Cold front, which will arrive to the region around Friday, 16. October 2020, should bring severe winds in Great Lakes Area and similar rains as remnants of Delta on organized storm line, but more important will be next cooldown and possible first snowing in New York or Pennsylvania.
