The tree took out a power line on Young Avenue knocking out electricity to dozens of houses. Just down the block Tommy Xomvimane powered up his generator and ran an extension cord across the street to a neighbors house. “I’m just helping out a neighbor. Connecting going across the street helping him out, connecting their refrigerator maybe television but I couldn't hook up their furnace or nothing like that,” said Xomvimane.
A few miles up the road in Greece Rick Clawson was cleaning up the branches high winds dumped in his front yard. “It looked like it was lightning, I thought we were having a thunderstorm or lightning storm and all of the sudden I came out here and just a big mess,” said Clawson.
Down on Mill Road Jim Gibaud surveyed the trees that fell in his neighbors yard. “It didn’t hit his swimming pool, it didn’t hit nothing. It came down just perfect. Come out of the south west broke off the top of a lot off these,” said Gibaud.
Despite the huge mess to clean up, Gibaud says it could have been much worse. “As long as it don’t hurt the house or hurt a person or something we a can clean this up,” added
