Several homes in Madison damaged in Storm

MADISON, N.H. — Intense storms damaged several homes Monday in Madison.

Fire Chief Jeff Eldridge said the short storm that hit the town was likely a microburst.

“Upon the deputy’s arrival, he found multiple trees, either on cars, on houses,” Eldrige said. “Wires were down. Services from houses were ripped down.”

Joanna Lucy and her husband watched the storm come in, and she said it looked pretty ordinary at first.

“And then we had hail, and it was hitting the windows, and then it was more than a fire hose,” she said. “You couldn’t see anything out the windows.”

Witnesses said the wind and rain picked up quickly.

“I was cranking the windows shut, and it was like somebody just threw a bucket of water at the house,” resident Gordon Hodne said. “I thought the lake had come up onto the house.”

“We looked out the window and saw everything blowing — the recycling bins and the lawn chairs,” resident Michelle Schmidt said.

A huge pine tree smashed onto the roof of Schmidt’s lakeside home.

“It was like an explosion, and then we saw the tree coming,” she said. “It was like a 70-foot white pine coming right at us.”

Crews were busy Tuesday cleaning up after the storm. Town officials said the storm covered a 5- to 6-mile area of Madison, with much of the damage along East Shore Road. Officials said five homes were significantly damaged.
