“I’ve seen a lot of hard hit areas with storms, even as far as having relatives down in the hurricanes,” Mayor Jeffrey Hazel said.  “I can say this is pretty tremendous damage in this area.”

“We will have crews out all night for as long as it takes to get everything back up and running,” Hazel said.


A tornado watch remains in effect until 7 p.m. tonight, Nov. 5. A tornado was reported in Mercer County today.

Emergency officials near the scene said power lines are down and live. Traffic is significantly backed up in the area of 29 East and Havemann Road.
