A line of severe storms caused wind damage to about 40 homes in Elkins on Tuesday afternoon. Orvetta Cox of 14124 Hummingbird Road said she ran to her hallway when she heard her roof began to crack. The 89-year-old wasn’t injured, but nearly half the roof was ripped from her home and several nearby trees were uprooted.
