Canfield residents cleaning up after the storm

Posted: Updated:
CANFIELD, Ohio -

Just before 2:30 p.m. Tuesday afternoon, Lindsay Lodge and her son, were heading outside to play at their home in Canfield.

"The wind just kept getting worse, and worse, and I grabbed him up, ran down in to the basement, got my daughter and that is all we saw. And we came out to this, " said Lodge.

Strong winds had knocked over several trees at the Lodge's North Palmyra Road home.

Across the street, another backyard also littered with tree debris.

Homeowners, who live about a half a mile away on Calico Lane in Canfield, are also having to clean up from this storm, and said it didn't stay long at all.

"Limbs came flying through the air, right in front of our faces. We were inside the garage. I said, 'Wow, we better get in under cover!', and by that time it was over. It was 20-30 seconds and it was gone," said Jack Daniels.

Neighbors along Caymen Court in Canfield came to a family's aid, after the storm completely leveled their garage.

The storm lasted long enough, though, to wake up Donna Dickey.

"There was a loud noise. It sounded like a train was coming through and the upstairs was shaking and stuff started falling off the walls and it was just a matter of maybe 30 seconds, to a minute and it was over. It was really scary. It sounded like a locomotive was coming through," said Dickey.

The powerful storm knocked out power to many in that area.

Roofing companies also found themselves at work, pounding away, re-shingling some roofs.
