Strong winds damage Putney property

Posted: Updated:

Some folks in Putney still haven't cleaned up from a thunderstorm that hit there Friday night.

A giant oak crashed onto a carport and the van parked underneath it.

The property belongs to First Baptist Church in Putney.

We spoke to a deacon who saw noticed damage on his way to the church Saturday morning.

It will likely cost several thousand dollars just to remove the tree which the church plans to use as firewood.
