Wind storms whip through farms, neighborhoods


PORTAGE COUNTY (WAOW) -- Dust storms have swept through our area, scattering dirt and soil sky-high.

Cars, coated with dust, sit parked next to farms, where owners say they're trying to keep the situation under control. They said they've been watering the soil to try to keep it grounded.

Some said this has become just one more weather-related issue they've had to stay on top of after having to postpone planting because of cold temps and soggy soil.
