GOWEN, Mich.--People are cleaning up after strong winds knocked out power Sunday and damaged homes and businesses.

Carol Blumberg is one of those people. She helps run an equestrian therapy center for special needs children in Montcalm county, where one of their essential buildings, the geodome, lost its roof when high winds kicked up in the area.

"I heard this funny flapping noise and then Tom though it was lightning and thunder and so I came out and I looked out the window and sure enough there it was it was just split right down the middle and then there wasn't a thing we could do about it," says Carol Blumberg of Moose Creek Equestrian Therapeutic Center.

"It shouldn't have happened but that wind was so strong last night that it was nothing we could do about it," continues Blumberg.

Carol needs $13,000 to repair the geodome. Here is a link to her GoFundMe page.
