Damage from Thursday storm

August 16, 2002

Thursday night's thunderstorms brought much needed rain to area lawns, but they also left some cleaning up to do in at least one Albany neighborhood. 

A tree fell on Calvin Hortman's car port roof. It came crashing down on the cars parked beneath. Hortman was outside just before it happened last night around 6, and says a strong funnel cloud of wind was blowing branches off all the trees.

"All neighbors came running, didn't know what was going on can imagine when it hit and the fiberglass fell on car, made some kind of noise," Hortman said.

The damage was on Webb Street just off Westover Boulevard. Hortman says luckily no one was injured and his insurance will cover the damages.
