Lots of damaged homes in many communities. Fenton got much help. Did Cohoctah? Holly seemed to have trouble. Residents could not get food, ice or other things unless they traveled to Clarkston or beyond. Also, many residents seem to have gotten forgotten. there are many elderly who do not have the means to care for themselves and when roads get cut off and electricity goes out, they lose life saving medical communication - no phone to call in and some have VOIP phones so they totally lost out.
Holly needs to set up a disaster training session. There were trees on the train tracks too! If this storm would have hit later in the evening or at night, there would surely have been fatalities.
Lesson learned, I hope.
