Strong winds damage Edinburgh cemetery and bleachers

A strong storm last night caused some damage in Edinburgh including downed trees and power lines.

Police Chief David Mann said the storm rolled through at about 8:15 last night but there is still no confirmation on whether it was a tornado or straight-line winds.

"We have considerable damage to the bleachers at the football stadium," Mann said. "(We have) just a tremendous amount of trees down, particularly in the cemetery area (the Resthaven Cemetery) and the adjoining neighborhoods. Luckily, while fences are down and trees are down and things of that sort, there have been no injuries, however."

A damage estimate on the high school bleachers is expected from the school district later today.
