WAYNE COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- One area that took a tough hit from Tuesday’s storms was Wayne County, where the severe weather left more than 34-hundred people without power.
Neighbors say the sounds of generators and chainsaws have felt like a constant this summer.
Elmwood resident Kevin Ross says the high winds were unlike anything he’d seen.
"I've lived here 30 years, and I've never seen anything like this before," he said. "It packed a punch.”
Trees were reported down all over the county.
On Big Branch Road, one landed on Ross's car.
"It sounded like a train coming through. I thought it was a train," Ross, who lives near railroad tracks, said.
Neighbors helped chainsaw a large tree that landed on one man’s garden.
An e-reporter sent a picture to WSAZ.com of a tree that fell on a home.
Despite the recurring theme of lost electricity, Elmwood resident Jack Maynard says the weather could be, and has been, a lot worse.
"Today it's not as hot as it was, so we're fortunate there," Maynard said.
No serious injuries were reported.
