Storm Damage Update

A damage survey team for the National Weather Service traveled to Canton today to an area hit by a severe storm Friday. According to the team, most of the damage was caused by straight-line thunderstorm winds. However, they say in a few areas, they also found evidence of a tornado touchdown, albeit a weak one. The storm downed trees and power lines. It destroyed signs and the lumber roof on Ace Hardware.

Some of the worst damage was southeast of Canton. Officials say they were not able to get to that part of the county today. They say all of the electricity has been restored in Canton.
