Allen County Library Collecting Storm Photographs for Archive

July 11, 2012 Updated Dec 5, 2013 at 4:07 PM EDT

Allen County, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - The Allen County Public Library is creating a record of photos from the June 29 storm and the smaller thunderstorms that came later in the next week.

The unusually strong thunderstorm known as a "derecho" moved through much of the Midwest causing tens of thousands of homes and businesses in the Fort Wayne and Allen County area to go without power; leaving some without power for more than one week.

Photos submitted will be shared in a collection in the Allen County Public Library's Community Album.

NOTE: Put an asterisk [*] after your name if you do not want it to appear on the library's Community Album website. http://genealogycenter.info/SummerStorm2012/

Submitting your photograph(s) gives the library permission to use the item(s) in any manner it deems appropriate.

If you have any questions please contact the Allen County Public Library at 260-421-1225 or Genealogy@ACPL.Info.
