MINDEN, N.Y. -- The Town of Minden and the Town of St. Johnsville experienced some significant damage from a heavy thunderstorm Thursday.
Downed trees, a collapsed barn and a tractor trailer was left on its side as strong winds swept through Montgomery County.
“I thought it was a tornado, but it only had a half moon twist to it,” resident Leland Hazzard said.
Hazzard grew up on Fordsbush Road in the town of Minden where a lot of damage took place. He said he huddled with his family and friends during the storm and listened as everything around him started to tumble.
