Storm downs trees near Lake Milton

BERLIN CENTER, Ohio (WKBN) – Residents of an RV park near Lake Milton are cleaning up after a storm blew through the area Monday night.

The localized storm hit about 8:30 p.m.

Trees landed on top of an RV and a trailer and another toppled over onto a tractor at the Lake Milton RV Resort on Mill Road in berlin Center, which sits south of the lake on the river.

“All of the stuff blew off of the porch and the tree next to the camper blew over and another tree blew over and hit the camper next to ours. It was just a bad storm,” said camper David Knapp.
