Road Race On Despite Storm

The Citizens Bank 5K Road Race is on according to race coordinators John Bysiewicz and Bob Holzberg.

The start of the race will be delayed until thunder and lightning has moved through the area, and will be delayed in fifteen minute increments.

"It's unfortunate," Holzberg said.  "We were on track for having a record year."

At 5:45 PM racers were arriving and were being registered for the run.

Wind and lightning strikes caused damage throughout the state, and Middletown was hit hard by pounding rain, hail, high winds and lighting.
