Residents helped clean up Monday, dragging limbs from the street and piling them in a nearby field.
Jim Mitchell, a maintenance worker for the park, said he was surprised there wasn’t more damage from the storm.
“I figured most of these trailers would be flipped on their side,” he said.
Marks said the storm wasn’t as destructive as residents anticipated. Compared to other areas like Kokomo, he said the county didn’t sustain too much damage.
“I’ve seen severe thunderstorms cause more damage than this,” he said. “We were pretty blessed it wasn’t worse.”
Marks said officials with the National Weather Service will investigate storm damage in the next few days, and determine if it was caused by a tornado.
“It’s just a waiting game and picking up pieces,” he said.
