Tornado Touches Down in Vidrine


TORNADO TOUCHED DOWN IN VIDRINE

FEBRUARY 21, 2014

 

    The National Weather Service confirmed today that a EF-1 Tornado touched down in the Vidrine area destroying several garages and barns and damaging  several homes. Damage to the homes consisted of some siding or roof shingle removal. One home had a tree fall on it temporarily trapping people inside but the Vidrine fire department helped rescue them and there were no injuries. At least seven power poles were snapped or pulled down along Highway ten.

    Evangeline Parish Office of Emergency Preparedness Director Liz Hill reported to KVPI News that 5-7 utility poles snapped due to the high winds. A little over 1000 Cleco customers were without electricity during the event due to the broken poles and the downed power lines. Most, if not all of the power has been restored in the affected area.
