CELINA, Ohio (WDTN) – Businesses in Celina got their power back late Wednesday night, after days without power.
Stores like Mendards and Walmart in Celina were using generators but some business can’t even do that after tornadoes completely took out businesses.
Assistant General Manager of Advance Auto Parts store, Jenna Koesters, says it affect more than businesses.
“We are losing a lot of business. It’s not even just us. It’s incredible what effect this has taken on this community,” Koesters said. “A lot of them are the sole providers of their families and they are out of work. People are fighting with temporary unemployment as they try and get things up and running.”
“I feel sorry for those people,” one shopper said. “I hope they are able to get it all put back together.”
Havemann Road was closed for most of Wednesday as crews worked around the clock to get power restored in the area.
C-Town Wings in Celina is hosting a Barn Sale and Bake Sale for local employees affected by the storms in the area. You can read the Facebook post below for more information.
