Rain Causes Tree Damage, Overflowing Sewage in Celina, Cridersville
CELINA/CRIDERSVILLE -- At the intersection of Count Road and Livingston Street heavy storms storms completely uprooted a 200-year-old tree. With all the rain we've been getting lately the ground was already saturated and the heavy winds and thunderstorms took this tree down. The owner says he was surprised to come home and see this.
"The flag pole is still here but the tree is gone. I mean look, this is even standing, what the heck," said homeowner Greg Polen.
And that's not all the damage we saw in Celina. A gazebo by Lakeshore Drive was not going to stand a chance with the high winds coming through here.
And it gets worse. The landlord at Posh's Nail Salon next to Paul's Mini-Mall says he had been working on this roof for a week and then the storm rips it apart, sending several bricks flying in between the buildings. We ran into Celina Mayor Hazel there who says 10 percent of the town's power is still out due to the storms, although they should have it restored by midnight.
And you know the criminals had to take advantage of some of those power outages.
We spoke to a cashier at Menards, who says while they were trying to clean up damage at the store, she had to call police because a man tried to walk out with a chainsaw.
"We had no power and our garden center was messed up. We were trying to clean that and he was just taking advantage," said cashier Lauren Keith.
We also spoke to Cridersville's Village Administrator after this week's floods overflowed the sewage systems and flowed sewage water into several homes. He says anytime you get 2 to 3 inches of rain in a short amount of time, their sewer system can't handle that.
"I think the town needs to overhaul the sewer system and make the pipes bigger, that's what we need," said Shirley Anderson, who has been a council member for 12 years.
"To overhaul the whole sewer system, you're talking about a multi-million dollar project that, like most small municipalities and villages, we cannot afford or handle," said Cridersville Administrator Jarid Kohlrieser.
