Storms hit city, county

May 26, 2011

    Adams County was almost floating today after a series of thunderstorms drove through the region as one of the wettest springs in local history continues.
    The worst-off appear to be the area's farmers, who have been unable to plant crops due to the continual muddy conditions in fields.
    Decatur and Adams County emerged mostly unscathed but drenched from the seemingly endless storms which rolled through the area during a period of 10 top 12 hours on Wednesday afternoon and early this morning.
