Mother Nature Lashes Out

By Staff | Jun 25, 2015

NATURE’S?FURY - A line of thunderstorms with intense winds moved over the area early Monday, causing damage to trees and in some cases, such as in Cylinder, damage to a house and garage. The storm hit around 7 a.m. and snapped off a large cottonwood tree that fell on a garage and home owned by Paul Sifert on Highway 18. Several other trees were snapped off in Cylinder, along with the flagpole at the Cylinder Fire Station, and a pickup driving through the community was struck by part of this tree, but no injuries were reported. Tree damage was also reported in Mallard from the same storm, and Mallard also experienced a loss of electrical power for a time due to the storm. -- Dan Voigt photo
