A storm that blew through the city of Cedar Springs Monday evening weakened just before it got here but was still strong enough to topple a tree and snap a telephone pole.
The storm came through between 7:30 and 8 p.m. Tuesday, June18. It was originally issued as a severe weather warning, with high wind gusts and marble size hail that could dent cars. Just before it hit the National Weather Service downgraded it and cancelled the warning, but that was little comfort to Wayne and June Price and others on Ronald Street in Cedar Springs who lost power.
Wayne sent us these pictures, and explained that “It poured, the wind blew, and toppled the neighbor’s tree into the road in front of our house, snapping our power pole at the end of our driveway. The top of the pole leaned over the road breaking our power lines to the house.” Consumers Power spent the night repairing the damage, and power was restored about 5 a.m.
