    After last Wednesday’s storms blew through the county overnight, many homes were left without power and property damage littered the county.

    But no location was hit harder than Shelblyville Country Club, which was in the midst of hosting its first professional event.

    “We had more than thirty trees go down, including two of the largest ones on the course,” said Greg Gibson, the club’s director of golf.

    And much of it he saw first hand.
