LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - In Lafayette, a mobile home park lost power from a tree that fell on a power line.
Severe thunderstorms rolled through the viewing area early Wednesday afternoon. They produced gusty winds, lightning and a number of power outages.
In Lafayette, the Cor-Dale Court Mobile Home Park lost power because a tree fell onto a power line. The tree also landed on Ilene King's home.
"It sounded like a bomb went off. I mean, it was very loud. And I didn't see any lightning. I don't know if there was lightning or not," said King.
King's next door neighbor James Edwards says he was also at home while the storms hit. He too heard the bomb-like sound when the tree hit the power line. Edwards lost power, but says he is fortunate for not getting any damage.
"I was very lucky. And I am glad my friends or neighbors next door are OK. That's all that matters," said Edwards.
King says she was shaken up when the tree fell onto her home, but she was happy that they only saw minor damage.
"I'm just glad it didn't do any more damage than it did," said King.
Lafayette firefighters say they need to remove the tree in order to fix the power.
