BLOWN AWAY

On Saturday evening, severe thunderstorms moved through Howell and surrounding counties, bringing heavy rains and winds with gusts reaching 50 mph, according to the National Weather Service. One Howell County resident woke up to a surprise Sunday morning. “I didn’t hear a thing during the storm,” said Bob Haymor, who lives just north of Brandsville on U.S. 63. “I went to bed, woke up the next morning and saw this mess.” A garage about 80 feet from his house was completely destroyed during the storm. Haymor checked the rest of his property, but found nothing else damaged or out of place — even a shed next to the now-ruined building was unaffected. At the time of the storm the only vehicle he stored in the garage was his riding lawn mower, which he said was also undamaged. He said the garage, which had been on the property since he bought it over 20 years ago, stood through all kinds of storms with no problems, until Saturday’s storm.
