Wild winds destroy a livestock shed

Published On: Jul 11 2014 10:49:59 PM CDT

Whipping winds and heavy rain caused storm damage near Falcon Friday (7/11/14) evening.

John Roa's livestock shed, where his horses were hiding from the storm, was flattened. Roa said the wind picked up, pea size hail began to fall and then it  rained buckets. He told KRDO he suspected winds were well over 70MPH. Not only did the strong winds destroy the shed and scatter sheet metal for nearly a mile, it also downed power lines.
