The National Weather Service storm damage survey team determined
that the damage to the neighborhood between Craig Rd. and Burns Rd.
was caused by a strong microburst that dropped over bordering
Old River Lake and spread northwest producing damage throughout
the small community in between the aforementioned roads. The damage
in the community was characterized by numerous large trees uprooted,
numerous outbuildings heavily damaged or destroyed, and the metal
siding and roofing material of several homes was blown off.
Thankfully there were no reported injuries or fatalities.
