Auglaize Village Recovering from 85.5 MPH Wind
AUGLAIZE COUNTY -- Cridersville residents are still waiting to hear whether a tornado touched down Wednesday in their village.
County EMA Director Troy Anderson says more than 80 homes and businesses were damaged by Wednesday's storm. That's 10% of the town. He said winds in Cridersville were recorded at 85.5 mph.
Five people were injured, Anderson said, including a postal worker who was picked up by the wind and thrown while on the job.
Also injured were an emergency responder and three residents.
"I heard a big tree limb hit the front end of the house about a second or so later a big one in the back end," said Ned and Janice Myers who were reclining in their living room yesterday afternoon when the storms swept through the Cridersville.
"About a second later the drywall from the ceiling fell down in one big piece," said Ned.
They were caught underneath heavy drywall for about 15 minutes.
"I said stay calm, stay calm," said Janice.
"We didn't really know what to do we couldn't move it it's got five or six inches of installation on top of it," said Ned.
Fortunately their children came in to check on them.
"They came walking in and all they saw was a big sheet of installation they said 'Are you guys in here where are you?' I said help and then he realized we were under the sheet of drywall," said Ned.
"Just about any tree in Cridersville is pretty much torn up," said Kaleb Vondenhuevel of Auglaize County Hwy. Department
And this storm comes just two days after several inches of rain flooded these same streets.
"I worked on that Monday night," said Evan Saunders of Cridersville. "Got the water softener taken care of Tuesday night and we kind of recovered and cleaned up from all the water issues we had Monday night and then this happened yesterday . It's been like back to back this week."
But now that the storms have passed, the clean up begins.
"Tomorrow we start celebrating our annual jamboree at the festival community and we're going to celebrate the fact that we will move through this we will move on and rebuild," said Mayor Laurali Myers.
Cridersville experienced an F2 tornado 2 1/2 years ago and some of the homes that went through that just finished rebuilding last year.
