High winds on Sunday night

Photos by Dennis Morrison
An extremely heavy windstorm struck Orange Township, just missing the village on Sunday evening.


Power was out for at least four hours in some sections of the township. Dennis Morrison provided several photos to the Icon, showing wind damage.

He reported that the Kimmel barn at 2357 Orange Township Road 27 was heavily damaged in addition to other structures in that neighborhood. Parts of the barn were scattered across the field all the way to State Route 235, over one-half mile away.

A mobile home on the east side of State Route 235, along Township Road 27 was blown off its foundation and flipped over, injuring one person.
