GRESHAM - Preliminary findings from the National Weather Service show there were straight-line winds up to 100 miles an hour on Wednesday night with a possible tornado near Gresham.
Residents like Ron Brewster, aren’t sure where to start in the cleanup process.
“Somebody has to figure out how to get them off without damaging it,” said Brewster of trees laying on top of his house.
During the storm, the Brewsters were at their house in Shawano. They say the destruction there was minimal compared to their summer home in Gresham.
“Just a few limbs on the ground, no big deal, but this one here is going to take a little bit of effort,” said Brewster.
The National Weather Service agrees. After a tour of the county, weather officials say the storms hit Gresham the hardest. Some of the evidence is bent trees like these, right next to the Reedys’ house.
“The wife goes we better get to the basement, look at the trees and I mean they were just whipping back and forth,” said Jeff Reedy.
County officials say it could be a while before they know the full extent of the damage.
Area road crews are ready to get out and salt the roadways. However, they say, that can't be doing that Wednesday night.
