A Look From Above: Garretson Summer Storm Damage

We're getting a birds-eye view of the damage straight-line winds caused in the town of Garretson earlier this week.

Joseph Thorin of Prairie Aerial shared drone video shot over the town on Wednesday.  

As you can see, Monday morning's wind ripped a roof off a home, crumbled a grain bin like a pop can and tipped over other storage containers. Almost nothing was spared from sustaining some form of damage; repairs are even needed at the football field.  But it's the dozens of trees that some may miss the most with a massive pile of downed branches now taking shape at the town's tree drop off sight.

Meanwhile, the city is closing down certain streets to keep the public away from areas where crews are still working.
