- Paul Fiene could barely believe his eyes last Wednesday.
"This is by far the most devastating wind storm I've ever seen," said Fiene.
Fiene has been a forester in Oneida County for 22 years.
"We usually get a little patch here, an acre here, and a few trees there," said Fiene. "But never to this extent where 99 percent of the trees are knocked down."
Fiene estimates Tuesday's storm took out anywhere from 30 to 40 acres of pine, hardwood, hemlock, and aspen.
