Although Crookston was spared from the brunt of the high winds that accompanied a storm system that rumbled through the area Friday evening, the Erskine,?Mentor and Maple Lake area was not.
Several trees were snapped in two or uprooted in and around Erskine and Mentor, and at Maple Lake numerous trees were blown down, and docks, boatlifts and boats were flipped.
No injuries were reported. The sound of chainsaws echoed across the lake for much of the weekend.
The Polk?County Sheriff’s Office asks impacted citizens to do their best to secure damaged property, and report storm damage by calling 281-0431.
