Storm Brings Limited Damage to Winston County

EMEPA Crews working to restore power
on Shiloh Road this morning
Storms rolled across Winston County and most of our area in the early morning hours on Wednesday, November 18. High winds and heavy rain affected the entire area but the western and southwestern  edge of the county was hardest hit.

It is yet to be determined if damage in the Four Corners area and along the northern end of Shiloh Road was the result of straight line winds or if a small tornado may have developed. Several hundred residents were without power for a period of time as EMEPA worked to removed downed trees from power lines. As of 11:00 am this morning, the company was reporting 82 residents still lacked power.

Preliminary reports indicate one injury on Hwy 19 near the Hwy 25 intersection when a tractor trailer  struck a downed tree in the highway. The driver was transported toWMC with non-life threatening injuries. Other reports in the Shiloh Community include downed trees and power lines, limited structural damage to a home carport and one vehicle was heavily damaged when a tree fell across it.
