Also in Parrott, a homeowner was in her bed as the storms passed through; her husband woke her just as winds leveled barns in their back yard.

Boards from the barn ripped through parts of the house, broken glass was all over the bed where she was just seconds before.

In plains, several giant oaks fell on a house and did major damage to the roof; volunteers were cutting trees and cover the roof with tarps before more rain fell.
