Strong storm does damage around Farmington


A storm one resident described as "a wall of wind" left many residents with toppled trees, damaged homes and crushed cars Tuesday morning.

The storm hit Farmington around 4 a.m. Tuesday with straight-line winds that snapped large branches off of some trees and tore others up by the roots, sending them over onto rooftops, garages and automobile. The powerful winds also did damage on their own, in one case demolishing a backyard shed.
