Lisbon mayor seeks volunteers to clean up June storm damage

Posted: Updated:
LISBON, Ohio -

It has been more than a month since stormy weather caused heavy damage to neighborhoods in Lisbon.

Some of the debris still needs to be removed, and village officials are asking members of the community to lend a hand.

Mayor Dan Bing is asking volunteers bring their chain saws, pickup trucks or trailers into town this weekend.

The mayor is calling on residents to help clean up what's left of the June 11th storm that tore through the community.

Those interested in helping can meet at the street department garage on Route 164 at 8:00 a.m. Saturday.

The national weather service determined it was a microburst that toppled dozens of large old trees along Washington Street, knocking houses off their foundations and tearing into roofs.

At one point after the storm, half of the town was without electricity. Some families left homeless sought refuge at the First Christian Church, which was turned into a shelter.

No one was injured by the storm.
