"A Stormy Night"
by: Bobby McDonald
Flags were "flapping" and the downtown square was quickly vacated, as band of thunderstorms
moved through Hopkins County, Monday night, providing some much needed rain.
A band of thunderstorms moved through Hopkins County, Monday afternoon, at approximately 6:30 p.m., providing some much needed rainfall, but leaving behind some storm damage from intense winds. Residents across the county reported downed tree limbs, blown away lawn furniture, and a number of garden containers "tossed about."
An area off College Street was without power for over three hours, on Monday night, and a number of residents were finding their yards, on Tuesday morning, filled with tree limbs, and some minor damages.
This home on Jill Lane had a number of limbs blown down from Monday night's storm.
"We certainly need the rain, but I'd like to avoid the storms!" summed-up one local resident.
Predictions for more thunderstorms are provided for both Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons.
"Hopefully we'll get some more rain," expressed one local farmer. "We need rain to keep the pastures and hay meadows alive!"
Another Jill Lane resident had another big mess to clean up, as a result of the storms.
