Comments: 

I took pictures of these natural avalanches on the east side of the Wellsville Range the afternoon of 4-5-16...  I last looked at these slopes on Saturday afternoon and this activity wasn't there, so the wet avalanches ran over the weekend or on Monday 4-4-16...  Several look to have been initiated by cornice fall...
