Clermont County taking donations, studying storm damage Sunday

Clermont County building inspectors plan to complete an initial assessment Sunday (March 4, 2012) of homes, buildings and other structures damaged following the violent Friday afternoon storms that caused extensive damage in the southern part of the county and claimed three lives locally.  "Thus far we have determined that many homes on and around Water Street in Moscow are uninhabitable," said Director of the Clermont County Building Department Carl Lamping.  "In addition to Moscow, we're seeing some of the heaviest damage to structures on the south side of Tate Township and the north side of Franklin Township."

Lamping said that it is unbelievable how the storm moved through the county.  "One house in Moscow looks like it was picked up and dropped; another is strewn all over the place," he said.  The new gas station on SR52 is in pieces.  The Moscow post office and administration building are heavily damaged. A nearby brick church has lost its chimney and on SR 133, there are pieces of homes, children's toys, and family memento's scattered across yards and roadways.  Huge trees have been uprooted.

A donation center will be open from noon until 5 p.m. Sunday at the 4-H Hall, located on the Clermont County Fairgrounds in Owensville.  For information on what items are needed, visit the Facebook site http://www.facebook.com/pages/Clermont-County-Fair/115428521815953.  For additional information about donations or serving as a volunteer to help during this recovery situation, call 641-6082.

    After a Mint Hill family is now without a home after a massive fire Friday night, neighbors said the damage to the home could have been minimized, if one of their long-time concerns had been addressed.
