Linton Residents Cleanup From Storm

Posted:

Severe weather hit Linton last night.

Heavy rains and up to golf ball sized hail was reported in the area, and this morning residents are busy cleaning up the mess.

<<"It was like the last days on earth, I thought God was coming," Loraine Tschritter said.

Loraine Tschritter has called the small town of Linton home for 66 years, and has never seen hail quite as big as Thursday night.

"It just like everything is going to be disappearing," Tschritter said.

The hail was so big it even broke several windows on her home and left her with a mess to cleanup in her yard.

"It was about a half an hour for sure," Tschritter said.

Just across the street Neil Weber's garden is a complete loss.

"Lettuce, potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers," Weber said.

The windows on his home also fell victim to golf ball and baseball sized hail.

One of those things happens to everybody I guess," Weber said.

The town has had its share of severe weather, but nothing quite like this.

"No, no, nothing that severe," Weber said.>>

In addition to the hail, Linton also received more than three inches of rain.
