SOUTH WAYNE - A severe storm, which according to the National Weather Service lasted less than 40 minutes, took out power and knocked down a number of trees in the village of South Wayne Thursday night. South Wayne Fire Chief Eric Berget said "the whole village was without power" after about six utility poles and roughly a dozen trees were brought down by strong winds. "The National Weather Service called it a downburst," Berget said, referring to winds that reached roughly 85 to 90 miles per hour in the wake of the intense thunderstorm.
