The 1,500 residents of Brookston spent Thursday without power, due to strong winds that felled dozens of trees and damaged buildings.
Most everyone in town, and on the outskirts, mentioned the sound of the wind that arrived with a storm just after midnight Thursday morning.
“I’ve never seen the wind like that last night,” Ken Lucas says. “That was just unbelievable.”
The hum of generators replaced the wind, as residents, including Lucas emerged from their houses and saw the damage.
