Trees and Branches Down in Oakland from Last Night’s Storm


Very strong winds came through Oakland late last evening, taking down branches and trees around town. Between an inch to an inch and a half of rain fell during the storm. Chain saws can be heard around town, cutting up the branches and trees to haul to the dump. It was definitely a strong spring storm.

Trees and branches are down in the Oakland park and throughout Oakland as a result of a storm that produced strong winds, rain and small hail later last evening. All photos credit of Denise Gilliland/Editor and Chief, Kat Country Hub.

Uehling, NE Suffers Extensive Damage in Storm


Strong winds ripped through Uehling and Craig causing much damage. It is not clear if a tornado was responsible or very strong winds. Uehling’s damage was unusual as the damage was on different parts of homes, indicating the wind could have been blowing in many directions. Hail damage was in excess, trees were down and some were even stripped of their leaves, leaving sidewalks and streets full of leaves. Windows were broken, shingles were in pieces all over sidewalks. Both communities are cleaning up today. Fortunately, there weren’t any injuries.
