Strong wind that blew through the area on Tuesday peeled up and pulled off sections of metal roofing

LYNDONVILLE — Strong wind that blew through the area on Tuesday peeled up and pulled off sections of metal roofing from a home on Pinehurst Street. Full sheets and cut pieces of roof from the home of Beverly and Dave Turcotte were piled in their front yard by Lyndonville firefighters who worked to make the property safe from falling metal. Firefighters, Lyndon Rescue EMTs and Lyndonville Police Chief Jack Harris responded to the report of the roof blowing off a home with a resident inside. Beverly Turcotte was home alone at the time the wind wreaked havoc on the roof above her. Part of the roof landed on her front deck, blocking the front entrance. Turcotte, who gets around in a wheelchair, was concerned for her safety. The weather early Tuesday of snow, rain and wind was a problem in many locations in the region as public safety and utility crews responded to several reports of downed power lines and trees across roadways.
