Severe Storm Hits Fremont Area

A heavy thunderstorm slashed its way across northern Wayne County Monday afternoon. The severe storm made its way east from Smithfield, delivering a direct strike to areas near Fremont.  The storm prompted the National Weather Service to issue a Tornado Warning.  Marble-size hail and strong winds damaged trees and buildings in areas surrounding Fremont.  Wayne County Public Schools reports some if its buses may be running late Monday afternoon due to the severe weather that struck the county.
