LAKE GEORGE- They are cutting and cleaning following a ferocius hail and thunderstorm that roared through here Tuesday evening.
The wind and large hail causing damage around much of this resort community.
Just off Beach Road, Peter Keating came home to find a century-old hickory tree crashed down in front of his lakeside home.
His wife was all alone inside.
"So she went into a room we have under the stairs, thinking that a tornado was coming through," said Keating.
No tornado, but the wind and especially the hail wreaked havoc. The ice balls broke windows and ripped through screens at the historic Wiawaka Holiday House women's retreat.
"We just finished a work weekend with about forty volunteers this Memorial Day weekend. We had the place all set, spic and span, ready to go," said Christine Dixon, Wiawaka's executive director.
