Storm downs trees, power lines


Torrential downpours followed heavy hail as a quick-moving severe storm moves through downtown Elkin and the region Wednesday about lunch time. Heavy winds also accompanied the storm and continued throughout the day and night, keeping area emergency and fire personnel busy with dozens of downed trees and power lines in both Surry and Yadkin counties. “There were about 100 trees down in roadways, and 30 to 40 power lines down,” said Surry Emergency Services Director John Shelton, who added many residents were left without power, but none had been injured as a result of the storm. “Trees fell on structures like out-buildings and garages. There are a lot of shingles which will need replaced, too.”
