Storm damage in Vermilion County

GEORGETOWN -- After strong storms Wednesday morning, many homes are damaged. Susan Chernauskas needs to make some repairs to her home.

Strong winds broke branches off her neighbor's tree. Some hit her roof and almost covered her whole front yard. She spent the day cleaning up water and debris.

"All of a sudden it sounded like an earthquake hit my house," she said. "I've lived here for 15 years, and I've seen a lot of storms go through here, but this is the worst that's ever happened."

Chernauskas isn't the only one with damage. Other homes in Georgetown and Westville were also hit by tree branches.
