Storm damages homes, downs trees
Strong storms moved through Pierce County shortly after 3 p.m. Wednesday, July 14, damaging several homes and downing trees to leave a handful of roads blocked.
Julie Stoltenburg was home with her two-week old baby at W 6303 870th St. in the town of Trimbelle when she heard the storm sirens, got nervous and took her daughter to the basement. She called husband Jeff at work, who began making his way home. The couple's toddler son was not home at the time.
