Share this post

The director of Starke County's Emergency Management Agency says Starke County Airport received quite a bit of damage during Tuesday's storms. Ted Bombagetti says they lost four hangars, and at least five planes were "totaled".  In the city of Knox, trees were knocked down throughout the city and at one point the entire city was without power. Bombagetti says the storm damaged the city's 911 communications tower, "buckled it in half", however he says remarkably, they did not lose 911 communication for emergency services as the antenna stayed intact.
