LENOX RESIDENTS FOCUSING ON CLEANUP FOLLOWING TORNADO
(LENOX) The main focus is cleanup in the city of Lenox today. A tornado ripped through the town Wednesday afternoon causing damage to homes and businesses and tearing away trees in the city park.
“There are a lot of people right now in town with trailers, dump trucks, tractors, and the chain saws are sounding like bumble bees going around here today,” said Mike Venteicher.
Venteicher says he was working at Michael Foods when the tornado hit.
“We were out there, it was about 4:15, and the sirens went off. We actually got evacuated to the middle of the building,” said Venticher. “South of town there is a place that has tile and the big rolls of tile were flying across the road and ended up in the city park and the swimming pool, and everything in the city park is pretty much gone.”
Venteicher said anyone willing to volunteer with clean up should check in at the Methodist Church.
