June 29, 2012 - Thunderstorm Wind

An intense line of thunderstorms or Derecho moved across Crawford County during the afternoon of June 29th causing extensive damage. Winds were estimated to be as much as 70 mph. A 66 mph wind gust was measured in Bucyrus. The southeast corner of the county was the hardest hit. Over 50 percent of residents in southern Crawford County lost power during this event. Power was not completely restored for several days. Hundreds of trees were downed across the county along with many utility poles forcing the closure of some of roads and streets. Damage to homes and buildings was also extensive. Dozens of homes and buildings lost roofing or siding with many other homes damaged by fallen trees. A mobile home was destroyed just to the north of Bucyrus. Clean up costs were extensive. The clean up was hampered by an ongoing heat wave with afternoon temperatures in the upper 90s. Significant crop losses are also expected. Damage from this storm was comparable to the remnants of Hurricane Ike in September 2008.
