Damage Caused by Wind Storm
April 16, 1945

The violent windstorm of April 7th and 8th caused damage to homes and crops in Honey Lake Valley. Little damage was done in Susanville.

Among the homes damaged was the three-room cabin belonging to Mr. and Mrs. O. Gasperoni at Janesville. The entire house, including its cement foundation was lifted into the air, resulting in a broken and shattered foundation, side walls blown apart; windows and doors blown in and partition and floor collapsed.

Over nine acres of freshly sown grain belonging to Fred Dieter at Buntingville was lifted from the ground by the wind.

A large roof on the grainery belonging to Will Bailey, also at Buntingville, was completely blown off, and a large elm tree in the garden of Lloyd Hoffman at Buntingville was leveled.
