Tile most damage reported oc¬ curred at the home of Shirley and Jim Dhamer at the east edge of town on the Dundee blacktop. Mrs. Dhamer had taken the children to catechism, leaving one child at Jiome when the wind hit. ITie youngster went into the basement Avith a flashlight and transistoi' radio. One of several trees knocked down at the Dhamer home fell onto the roof of the house. Fortunately, no one was injured. A willow tree at tho home of Mr. and Mrs. Soren Btmgard toppled onto their garage.
