Saturday night’s storm caused widespread damage across the northern area of the City of Clinton and the fire district.

Clinton Fire responded to 23 storm-related calls from 8:34 p.m. Saturday to Sunday morning at 9:35 a.m. Clinton Fire had 12 members of staff who operated in five emergency vehicles and answered all calls within a 3-4-minute response time. There were three calls for trees on homes, one of which had three persons trapped, and who were able to self-extricate prior to our arrival. There was an accident on Willard Road with a vehicle on a tree. There were multiple trees-in-roadway calls and downed electrical lines.

Crews worked diligently in answering the bulk of all calls by 2:30 a.m. on Sunday, January 12. There were some residual calls until Sunday morning that normal shift operations were able to handle.

Through this time period, there were no reported injuries.

Clinton Fire worked hand-in-hand with Clinton Police and Clinton Public Works to make areas safe for the community and those on the roadways. A special thanks goes to Laurens County Dispatch. These professionals received a very large 911 call volume, managed the volume and calmly communicated a large number of calls in a short time period to us, as well, to all emergency responders in Laurens County.
