A severe storm ripped through Huntington Friday around 7 p.m., leaving destruction in it's path.
Downed trees caused multiple issues for residents, road crews, and firefighters responding to emergencies in Huntington.
Large trees fell on West Middle School on Jackson Avenue in West Huntington. The trees also broke several power lines.
One massive tree blocked 5th avenue between 11th and 12th avenue where traffic had to be diverted.
Right outside of the 13 News Station was a large tree that blocked the roadway and caused congestion until road crews could remove it.
One Huntington resident describes the destruction that the storm caused.
"We came out to assess the damage and there's telephone poles that are at a 90 degree angles. There's trees on West Middle School. Trees hit neighbors trucks- it was terrifying," said Traci Conrad of Huntington
Wind not only toppled trees in Huntington, but it also ripped signs and awnings from buildings. An awning from Glenn's sporting goods was sent flying into a parking lot and into two parked cars.
At the Dutch Miller pre-owned lot, a sign fell onto a car and ripped through power lines.
Several fences, siding on houses, and road construction signs were seen all over the roadways.
As road crews dealt with cleaning up trees and downed power lines, the Power company now must deal with several power outages.
Pullman Square closed shortly after the storm hit because power was knocked out. Shoppers and movie goers had to leave the building. Many stop lights were out as drivers cautiously navigated the roads.
