Wind Burst August 16 2007
On August 16 2007 around 3:30 in the afternoon a wind and rain storm quickly passed through Lake Hughes . It left a very distinct path of destruction. It started above Lake Hughes West passed across Pointe aux Vent out across the lake. It clipped the point at Campers Beach then again crossed the lake and finally ended at Horseshoe Road . Every tree in its path was snapped or toppled over. There was only minor damage to one house. The scars will remain on the landscape for many years.
