In the middle of the powerful storm last Friday night, the Pine County Sheriff’s office says a report came in that people were trapped in the woods near sandstone.

The call came in at approximately 8 p.m. that individuals were trapped by storm debris in the Mallard Lake Road/Markville Road area in Sandstone. Nine people were trapped in the woods and made it out safely approximately 14 hours later after members of Duxbury Fire used chain saws to clear the trees and debris.

More on this story, and many others can be heard on Thursday morning at 7:30 when Pine County Sheriff Robin Cole has his weekly radio appearance on 100.9 Cool Country.
