Some electricity has been restored and most roads have been reopened following that tornado that devastated much of the village of Cloverdale and surrounding areas.
Putnam County officials say electricity has been restored to the village of Cloverdale, although many residences are still without electricity due to the extent of damage to the homes.
Drivers are reminded that Putnam County Road 21-H between Putnam County roads I-17 and I-18, and Putnam County Road 19, between Putnam County Road H and Ohio 613 will remained closed through the day today.
Meanwhile, donations and volunteers are still needed. The village is in need of rakes, trash bags, snow shovels, moving boxes and five-gallon buckets. Items can be dropped off at Oak Haven Residential Care Center.
Volunteers were being asked late Thursday to dress for the weather and meet at St. Barbara’s Parish Hall this morning.
