High winds did
more than just topple trees in Sandusky County - power poles snapped like
toothpicks near Fremont.
For Donna Fought
and her husband as they surveyed the damage after the storm at their home on
the outskirts of Fremont, it was a sight they say they have not seen in some
this, usually maybe you get a few limbs down in the yard, that's nothing to
worry about," Fought said. "But when you see all of this and, of course, these
are old trees, too, but then when you look up at this one and it took the top
out and put it right there…Looks like we'll be cleaning for a while."
Just a few miles from the Fought home, on
County Road 128, power poles that lined the road snapped in half from high
winds, knocking out power in the area. It was just one of the many road
closures in the area.
