People react to weather damage

Posted: Updated:

Crews are busy cleaning up the mess the storm left behind.

As you can see, high winds and heavy rain made it difficult for drivers to get around town in the afternoon.

Intersections and low-lying areas filled with water while people reported damage around town.

The weather completely shifted by 5:00 p.m.

On the bright side, it was nicer weather for crews to pick up the mess, like a street light that came crashing down on someone's Suburban at Sixth and Commercial.

Nobody was hurt, but a witness says it made an awful noise.

"That wind was kind of surprising. I've never seen anything like it. It switched directions like that, in both ways," Eric Zafft said.

Meantime, reports of several trees down across town, and even power lines were reported down in some spots.

We haven't heard any reports of injuries, but at last check crews are cleaning up the mess.
