Lakeview residents pick up debris after severe storm

Lakeview, Ohio (W.C.M.H.) – Local residents in the Lakeview area of ​​Logan County face cleanup and recovery after Thursday night’s devastating storm.

This village is located north of Russell’s Point on Indian Lake. Downtown Lakeview and the area known as Midway were both severely damaged. Rick Stanley’s Midway neighborhood has been torn apart by bad weather. The trailer house overturned and two people were rescued from the rubble.

“There were two guys trapped in this. Look, the axel is upside down. That trailer literally flipped over,” he said.

Several mobile homes in the neighborhood were flipped over by the storm.

“You can’t process when you lose everything. We have a house that’s standing, but what do you do when that house goes up in the air and comes back down?” Stanley said. .

He was at home when the storm broke out. He shoved his wife, children, and grandchildren into the closet and helped cover up what he could.

“If the closet door had come off, we would have all been sucked into it, because we were right in the middle of the storm and there was no way out,” Stanley said. .

Travis Gauss’s house is a little further down the road from where Stanley lives. When it was windy, rainy, and haily, he was at home. The family survived, although part of the roof was lost and one of the bedrooms was partially detached from the house.

“It’s a tragedy. A lot of people don’t know what’s going to happen. I’m trying to cope myself, but I know there are people who are worse off, with families hurting and losing everything. ” Gause said.

For Stanley, the Midway area is a special place. He has lived in the neighborhood for 50 years. His friends and family are his neighbors. This is also his place of business. Within minutes everything changed.

“I spent my life building it. I didn’t build it for myself, I built it for my sons,” he said. “If I die, my sons will understand, and in an instant everything will disappear. There are no words to explain it.”
