Wednesday is the hottest day of the year, but people in Portage County have been out since sunrise, assessing the damage from Tuesday's storm.
Some have found just a few broken branches in their yards, others now have 100-foot tall trees toppled over their homes.
Katie Jacobs and her family moved into their dream home just 9 months ago. A big draw for them was the McDill Pond right in their backyard. And they loved the more than a dozen trees that provide lots of shade.
Wednesday, the only shade you'll find back there is underneath the roots of large cottonwood trees, thanks to the storm. A set of five trees was uprooted and flipped over onto the Jacobs' home.
"I cried, that was my first reaction," said Jacobs. "I guess it was devastating to see our house basically covered by trees. And the good thing was that nobody was hurt, everybody made it downstairs and nobody got hurt."
A couple miles away Teri Millonig feels the same. The tree that toppled over her home landed on top of her children's bedrooms.
"We were just grateful the kids weren't in their rooms and everybody is safe," said Millonig.
There are no reports of any injuries.
