ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - High winds have claimed a life and left thousands of utility customers without power around upstate New York.

State police say an outbuilding collapsed on Wednesday afternoon in the Jefferson County town of Theresa, killing a man.

By Thursday morning, utility workers around the state were hustling to restore electricity to more than 80,000 customers amid downed trees and wires
