A caller advised, and confirmed by the Mercer County Sheriff’s Department, that it was the home of Paul and Carol Lee Branam off Route E,south of Princeton.   

The sheriff’s office stated there were no injuries reported. The office indicated the Branam’s were at home and sought shelter in their basement.

A neighbor reported other damage at the Branam farm includes to a hangar and small plane as well as to a barn and farm implements. Cleanup efforts are underway.

The Branam's plan to stay with a neighbor for now. The caller and others believe it was a tornado that hit the house.

The National Weather Service received a couple reports of possible tornadoes in rural Mercer County about 10 o’clock Sunday night.   Storm spotters confirmed trees down and power poles snapped on Route E, a couple miles east of Route C.

Grundy Electric Cooperative did receive major storm damage to poles and wires last night in a very concentrated area of Mercer county. The damage was contained to an area east of Princeton and south of Ravanna. 

Crews are working to replace twelve poles that were downed and also string new conductor.  The damage was in a very rural area, thus only a couple of members remained without power this morning.  Crews were working to repair the damage caused by high winds and possible tornado.

Grundy Electric reminds everyone to think safety and stay clear of any downed power lines.
