Storm damage


A late winter nor’easter swept across Jamestown this past weekend, claiming this old cedar at Beavertail State Park. The official recorded wind gust was 53 mph at the Lawn Avenue School. A local fisherman reported that he saw the wind speed reach 85 mph on his boat during the storm. There were a number of downed tree limbs and the report of several trees falling on houses.
