  George Snyder was driving the fire truck down Route 88 when he first noticed that a funnel (漏斗状的)cloud was behind him.“I stopped the truck and watched the funnel cloud.It was about 100 feet off the ground and I saw it go up and down for a while.It was moving toward Bradley Road and then suddenly it disappeared.”Snyder said.

  The tornado caused a 10t of damage to cars and houses in the area.It will take a long time and much money to repair everything.There was also serious water damage from the thunderstorms.The heavy rains and high wind caused the power to go out in many homes.

  The storms caused serious flooding in areas near the river.More than four inches of rain fell in parts of Trumbull County.The river was so high that the water ran into streets and houses. Many streets had to be closed to Cars and trucks because of the high water.This made it difficult for fire trucks,police Cars,and other rescue vehicles to help people who were in trouble.

  “This was a really intense storm,”said Snyder.“People were afraid.Mother Nature can be fierce.We were lucky this time.No one was killed”
