High winds cause damage

High winds whipped through the Laurel area Thursday, Friday and Saturday, damaging several trees, roofs and at least one business. Missa Sue’s lost one of her windows at her downtown business. The flag pole at Hillcrest Care Center was also broken off.  Storage unit number two at the CedarView Country Club was blown apart and pieces of the building were scattered around Saturday. The community also received major tree damage when sustained winds of 40 miles an hour hit town with wind gusts of over 60 miles an hour.
