The Toll.

Wednesday’s severe thunderstorm caused scattered damage in Defiance and the area, that’s according to the National Weather Service’s North Webster, Ind. office. The storm was most disruptive on the east side…where a couple of electric poles went down, including one with a transformer attached. That one crossed Ottawa Avenue and blocked traffic until the mess could be cleaned up. Large tree branches that fell also caused some damage around town while a whole maple tree snapped off at its roots on the former school property on Arabella Street. Eastside power was knocked out for some customers. The only major structural damage to a home in Defiance appeared to be on Riverside Ave. where a tree struck a house’s roof.
