High Winds Rip Roof Off Of Home

It was not snow or ice that caused problems in Harlan County, it was wind.

It was so bad, it ripped the roof right off a trailer in the Dayhoit community just after midnight.

Edna and Robert Carmical were not injured, but spent Wednesday trying to salvage their belongings.

“It started out loud and just got louder. If it started out at 100 mph, it sounded like it got to 200 mph within seconds,” Robert Carmical said.

The Carmicals are staying at a local motel, but are seeking help from the Red Cross, as well as the public.
