Ten days after two storms left destruc­tion in their wake, Put­nam County is on the road to recov­ery.

The small vil­lage of Cloverdale was effec­tively “ground zero” for one storm cell which spawned a Cat­e­gory EF2 tor­nado on Nov. 17.

Four fam­i­lies who rode out the storm in the Cloverdale Com­mu­nity Club made the Oak Haven Res­i­den­tial Care Cen­ter, at 152 Main St., Cloverdale, their home for a few days after their own homes were lost.

Now, heavy equip­ment is work­ing tire­lessly to clear up the remain­ing debris and then the re-building will start.

Elec­tric­ity has been fully restored to the vil­lage, how­ever power has not been restored to all build­ings due to dam­age that must first be cor­rected before crews can re-connect those homes and busi­nesses safely.
