Cutting out from under storm damage

Cutting out from under storm damage: A small tree over the front of her house on Wabash Ave. seemed small potatoes once the huge oak in back was spotted in Karla Kronke’s yard. The tree was completely uprooted and the garage collapsed atop her car. Luckily she was not at home at the time and has a second vehicle undamaged. Dane Jackson and his son Justin, both of Chesterton, were hard at work Thursday afternoon cutting the huge tree in pieces to be trucked away--a daunting task, but Dane and Justin were in good spirits and just taking the tree apart a bit at a time.
