The Lake Panorama area was hit by severe storms Sunday night. Several homes were damaged by a suspected tornado.
The damage seems to follow a straight line path, impacting homes and buildings on the west and east sides of the lake. Some condos on the lake appear to have taken a direct hit. Only one person was in the condos when they were hit. No one was hurt.
“Yeah the day of the week is the big thing for us. Sunday night a lot of folks who have these as weekend places have gone home. It could have been a lot worse if it was a Friday or Saturday night,” says John Rutledge with the Lake Panorama Association.
A team from the National Weather Service is expected to come out Monday to determine whether a tornado is to blame for the damage. Meanwhile, residents are beginning the long chore of cleaning up the storm’s mess.
