Ryan deLeuw, a homeowner near Lake Roesiger, said it was rainy but only slightly windy on Sunday evening, May 4; when suddenly, a noise outside got louder and louder. He looked out the window. The wind had come in hard and fast, and the trees were “bent at a 45 degree angle.”
deLeuw moved away from the window. Within a short time, deLeuw believes only 45 seconds or so, the wind subsided, and he met up with his neighbors outside. A tree had fallen on a shed; a playhouse had been blown apart; the siding on a neighbor’s house was damaged and a five-gallon paint bucket had blown from his house approximately 300 feet down the street.
The National Weather Service is investigating the possibility that the Lake Roesiger community experienced a small tornado.
