See storm damage in northern Columbia County

Posted: April 15, 2019 - 11:18am

A gusty storm blew through the area early Monday morning, downing trees and power lines, demolishing at least one barn, ripping apart a borough shed and destroying a hangar. Shortly after the storm passed through the Benton area, the clubhouse at the Mill Race Golf Course started ablaze. Here's a collection of the photographs Chief Photographer Keith Haupt has taken so far.

We'll have lots more in Tuesday's Press Enterprise.
