Goshen hit hard by overnight storms

Last night's storm wreaked havoc on the area.

In Goshen, trees, power lines, homes and businesses all suffered damage.

"It's outrageous, I can't believe the storm was so powerful that it was able to knock a tree as powerful as that is into the house and it was like that all through town," says Danielle Wolfe of Goshen.

Fred Moles couldn't believe the damage his home took.

"The pine tree out back had crushed the back part of my house, there's a tree limb over on my vehicle, there's a big limb over on the back of the house on the garage, it jerked the meter off the side of the house, it's quite a mess," says Moles.

Businesses were not safe either. The Martin's Supermarket in Goshen was a victim to the fierce winds. The storm ripped apart the side of the store and shattered several windows.

Clean-up efforts were underway Wednesday morning. Mike Cardoza did not want to waste any time getting his street back into shape.

"I'm just starting right now it's probably going to take me two to three days to clean up what I got and who knows what other people got," says Cardoza.
