Monday night storm causes destruction
June 10, 2020
TREES AND HEADSTONES in the Haxtun Cemetery were uprooted during a late-night thunderstorm on Monday, June 8. Winds, reportedly from a micro burst, swept through the area wreaking havoc all over town knocking over trees and limbs while taking down power lines. Haxtun residents lost power shortly after midnight and as of Tuesday afternoon remained without electricity.
Town crews, County employees and community members rallied all day Tuesday to begin clean up efforts and restore power. For more coverage of the early June storm see next week's edition of the Herald....
