MIDDLETOWN — Power is restored and roads are almost fully cleared after a severe storm rattled this small community Saturday night. It sits on the border of Logan County.
People say it’s the worst storm they’ve seen in the area. The National Weather Service is calling it a “downdraft” which means the wind came straight down, hit the ground and expanded outwards.
Winds neared 65 miles per hour, taking out several power lines and dozens of trees. The town was without power for more than 24 hours.
No one was hurt or displaced, but many were shaken. Residents are just glad they’re safe. Town officials say they’re glad things weren’t worse.
