Neighborhood cleaning up after storm

Posted: Updated:
MIDLAND COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

The storm damage hasn't been nearly as severe as other parts of the country, but in one isolated area it got pretty rough.

Most of Midland County came away from the storm unscathed, but strangely in one small neighborhood it was a very different story.

Kathy Space described what went through her mind when a severe storm swept through western Midland County.

"It was just like this is bad. Basement now," she said.

Neighbors said they're shocked by all the damage the storm caused.

On McGruder Road the storm knocked over and completely uprooted several trees, damaging homes and cars. Most of the county seems to have escaped major storm damage, but residents said the neighborhood was hit particularly hard.

Crews have closed McGruder Road for several hours on Wednesday as they worked to clean up trees and debris left behind by the storm.

For some of the residents clean up has just begun, but after a storm like this they said they're extra grateful that everyone is OK.
