Storms Flood Linton

Last updated on Friday, June 19, 2009

(GREENE COUNTY) - Yesterdays thunderstorms caused a number of things to happen.

There were a dozen empty train cars blown off their tracks, about 30,000 people were without electricity at one point, although power is now restored to those homes, as well as a drastic number of trees down in Greene County, including trees falling into a house.

The city of Linton was heavily flooded with knee high water in the streets, some of the public riding in paddle boats throughout the city.

So far there have been no reported deaths or injuries.
