Storm Damageby Amy Wenger on June 18, 2014
Hannah Wenger of Wakarusa took this picture of a huge tree that was one of two to fall across East Wabash Avenue during a fast moving round of severe storms that struck the area on the afternoon of Wednesday,June 18.
Brisk winds, heavy rain, and lightning were reported across the region, and severe thunderstorm warnings were issued for St. Joseph, Marshall, and Elkhart counties. This particular tree landed just a few feet away from the Wenger family's home, and it has since been removed from the heavily traveled Wabash Avenue corridor. Anyone else who witnessed or experienced storm damage in their neighborhoods can share their photos with The People's Paper for inclusion in a photo gallery.
