HENRY COUNTY, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Storms rolled through Henry County Wednesday afternoon, knocking down trees, branches and power lines.

All the limbs and branches that were blocking major roads were cleaned up by Thursday, but residents still have a lot of work to do in their own yards. They are confident, thought, that they'll get it done quickly.

"The whole neighborhood is pitching in," said Napoleon resident Scott Hessey. "The good news is we've met neighbors we've never met before, so we're all out here pitching in, and hopefully the city does, too, because there's lots of clean up that needs to happen."

Officials say about 1,600 Henry County resident woke up without power Thursday. Crews are working to restore lines and expect to finish before midnight Friday morning.
