A wind storm Friday evening at Deer Cliff Inn blew down trees and injured two people, who were sent to Franklin County Medical Center.
The restaurant had between 30-40 people enjoying their meals when a strong wind gust came through causing damage to the area. Trunks of two of huge willow trees snapped and debris was blown all over the area.
“We were lucky the trees didn’t crash on any of our cabins or restaurant,” said owner, Joy Daugherty.
“I have heard of microburst winds but have never experienced one and hopefully I won’t again,” said North Ogden resident Roger Holcomb and his wife, Nancy, who stayed the night in one of the rustic cabins.
Early Saturday about 50 people with trucks, chain saws and other tools came to help clean up the mess caused by the wind.
Daugherty said she and her husband want to thank all their friends and neighbors who came to assist them in cleaning up the debris caused by the wind.
The restaurant is open for business and is located up Cub River Canyon.
