tornadoDamage1 Orrville, OH – 15 Aug 14 – We have been having extreme weather all of this past summer, of 2014. Eastern Ohio has experienced record amounts of heavy rainfall, and flooding, since early spring ’14, and there have been numerous thunderstorms, microbursts and even several tornadoes sighted in the Orrville area. There have been rumors that David Handwerk, Mayor of Orrville, is worried that buildings may collapse from the ground being weakened due to being saturated from all the rain. Jeff Ledger, from PropellerPowered, has been asked to prepare a team of SAR-Bots (Search-And-Rescue Robots) in case of any major damage. Stay tuned to OPPE News for further details as they develop.
