November 10, 2015

Elko County officials say the city of Carlin suffered hundreds of thousands of dollars in storm damage from the high winds and snow that blew through Nevada last week.

The town on Interstate 80 about 12 miles west of Elko was without power for 14 hours after the storm hit on Tuesday.

County Commissioner Cliff Eklund said at an emergency meeting that at least 30 homes and numerous vehicles were damaged, mostly from downed tree limbs.

According to the Elko Daily Free Press, Eklund estimates the damage will total less than $1 million but could be in the range of $500,000-$600,000 including personal and city property, and utility repairs.
