Storm Blows Down Tree in Edgefield

A storm Tuesday night blew a tree down across a street in Edgefield.  Ricky Dalme told The Journal it was about 10:30 pm when the storm came through.

Dalme said a big tree was blown down in the 500 block of Edisto Street.  He said, “Clearing it up took about an hour or so.  Later, on Wednesday morning, the final clearing work was done.”

The storm Tuesday night comes on the heels of several storms that raked Red River parish this week.  The most severe passed through Hall Summit on Monday afternoon.  Residents described it as a tornado that moved through with heavy rain and some reported hail.
