Hail and Wind Damage Property Through Oakland City, Boonville, Newburgh [PHOTOS]

Last night the the last day of July, a freak storm not only interrupted the Sweet Corn Festival in Oakland City and for the first time in more than 80 years disassembled the parade, but it also caused a great deal of property damage in its path. According to WJLT On-Air Personality, Annie Jenkins, four people were injured in Gibson County from baseball-sized hail that flew relentlessly at parade bystanders. Trees, power lines, power poles, cars and homes were all damaged in storm late yesterday afternoon.
Currently, only residents are allowed in Oakland City and officials say there is a curfew in effect from 10:15 p.m. tonight to 6:00 a.m. Wednesday morning..
