March has definitely come in like a lion this year, with tornado sightings and sirens, strong winds, hail, heavy rain, and lots of damage around the county. Through the first few hours of March waves of strong storms rolled through the county causing isolated power outages, flooding, and even an eventual school closure. Several farms and were damaged in the storm with a few reports of tornado sightings coming in from around the county. Barns in and around the Unity area and SR 247 were completely destroyed by these early March storms. Most of the damage caused by the storm was due to high winds bringing down trees, power lines, and ripping roofs from homes and businesses. Falling trees can easily damage homes and other objects in their path.

Flooding remains a possibility as runoff from the storms continue to drain and flow to the streams, creeks, and river that flow through the county. Be sure to remain vigilant and keep an eye on water levels and remember to never drive through flowing waters. The staff at The Informer will continue to update this post as pictures are sent into us. If you would like to share a picture of the storm damage, send your photo to news@informerpress.com.
