Storms topple trees at Woodford County farm

Cleanup continues in Woodford County. During last night's storm at Merry Meadows farm the rain wasn't the only thing hitting the ground.

Workers estimate between twenty and twenty-five trees were taken down by high winds overnight. They expect it will take a couple of days to clean up the damage spread across the farm.

For one farmhand who lives on the property, the storm hit even closer to home, when a tree landed on his wife's car.

"We've had storms, had trees come down, not to this extent. Looks like a tornado came through here," said Reed Stepp who works on the farm.

Stepp was called in this morning to begin cutting and hauling away the dozens of trees that now litter the ground of this tobacco farm.

The workers say other effects of last night's storm are still being felt. The storm put a lot of water on the ground, they say it saturated everything and there's mud everywhere. They say these conditions aren't helping their cleanup.
