Storm damages crops, livestock

Article Image Alt Text

Photo by Rondi Aberle
Rondi Aberle took the photo at the right about 5 p.m. MT when she was on Highway 20 at the Promise turn-off. Kelly Landis, who lives just a half mile down the road to Promise, said most of the hail was marble size but some was as large as a ping pong ball. He said the hail lasted about 20 minutes accompanied by wind estimated at 50 mph. About 2 1/2 to 3 inches of rain fell.
Mark Landis photographed some of the damage in the area and another brother, Steve, took photos of some of their cattle that “looked like zebras” after hail pelted their hides.
Mark said the hail was 4 to 5 inches deep on the road and 3 to 4 feet in the ditches.
Damage to crops in the area was substantial; some fields and pastures were a total or near-total loss.

Law enforcement agencies investigating injury accident

An accident that occurred south of Timber Lake last Thursday, July 25 is being investigated by local and federal law enforcement.

Tommie Mettler, 47, of Timber Lake was struck by a pickup as she was walking on the county road about a half mile south of the airport early that morning. Dewey County Sheriff Les Mayer identified the driver as 29-year-old Frank Chapman of Bullhead, who was arrested for driving while under the influence of alcohol (DUI).

Mayer said federal authorities are also investigating and federal charges are “probably pending” because, although Chapman is not a tribal member, the victim, who sustained serious injuries, is.

Mayer said both the vehicle and Mettler were headed south when the driver apparently became distracted and failed to see Mettler on the road. When his passengers yelled at him that someone was on the road, he swerved to the left, hit Mettler, and went into the east ditch.
