Watertown cleans up after destructive storm

Posted: Updated:

Snapped limbs litter yards throughout Watertown.

"For what I've been seeing when I go around town walking, it just reminds me what I see on the news for Sioux Falls and the ice storm that hit in April," said Denise Chandler.

Some of that damage is in Chandler's very own yard.

"It makes me want to cry in a way for all the damage, but then that's just part of Mother Nature," said Chandler.

Leslie Kranz said the sky got dark and the winds were howling while she and her family waited out the storm.

"We were down in the basement on Friday night and we heard a thud. My husband said I wonder what possibly could that be. I told him to go check things out and obviously this is our car or the remains of our car," said Kranz.

An 80-year-old tree feel right on top of the Kranz' car. Leslie had driven it an hour before the storm and parked it on the street.

"We're just thankful no one was hurt. Everyone in Watertown was safe. Praise the Lord for that," said Kranz.

The straight line winds certainly left a mark on this car and the city of Watertown. But, as you can see, people are already dutifully clearing away the debris, thankful to have survived such a dangerous storm.
