The roof of the Antique Bar was severely damaged and much of the debris from the roof was deposited throughout the Main Street area. Several other structures also received damage and many trees were also uprooted in Eastside Park.
“There is quite a bit of damage around town,” said Mayor Joe Wellman. “It looks like the storm came in from the south and hit Main Street and the park pretty hard. Several beautiful trees are down in the park.”
Wellman said the city is doing its best to get everything cleaned up as quickly as possible. He also stated that if city residents have trees down in their yard, once those trees are cut up and placed into piles, the city would be able to come and pick them up.
Daviess-Martin REMC reported three power poles were broken off during the storm, 15 outages were reported and about 100 residents were without power. Washington Municipal Utilities was unsure how many outages occured within the city limits, but Wellman said he thought most of the outages were spotty.
“We had a few people without power here and there.”
