Around 4:00 Tuesday afternoon a “Micro Burst” hit a building at the home of Phil Fletcher, 5379 Woodbury Hwy. The building is a converted garage used as a family room. People had just gone into the house when they heard a loud noise and ran out to see the roof scattered across the yard. Part of the roof was blown about 200 yards across Woodbury Hwy. Debris damaged vehicles and a neighbor’s roof. No one was hurt. Mr. Fletcher was quoted as saying that there was not a cloud in the sky when the freakish winds came.
