Storm hits Greencastle-Antrim hard
High winds and lightning during a thunderstorm Sunday evening knocked down trees, scattered branches, and took out power throughout Franklin County and hit Greencastle-Antrim particularly hard. Winds picked up suddenly at about 8:45 p.m. for a half hour, recorded at 35 miles per hour with gusts to 60 mph.
Many area residents were cleaning up branches on Labor Day, and some waited for electricity to be restored. Over 1,500 customers in Franklin County lost power as up to 2 inches of rain fell in a short time during heavy winds.
