The remnants of Hurricane Ike roared through the area Sunday afternoon causing damage to some property and downing power lines, but winds locally were not as high as the 80 mph reported in other parts of the state.
Mike Ryan of the National Weather Service in Wilmington told the newspaper this morning that Sunday's weather was "very unusual."
He said the remnant-hurricane moved quickly along at 50 mph with just over 24 hours elapsing between landfall in Texas and Ike causing havoc in Ohio. [More]
