Storms Friday Knock Over Building Frame Near Airport

A storm passed through Bond County Friday evening, doing major damage at the Bill and Margie Mills farm, along Martin Road, east of Greenville Airport.
Strong winds blew down the frame of a large machine shed that was being built on the Mills’ property. It was approximately 80 by 200 feet in size and was ready for tin to be placed on it. The damage occurred about 7:30 p.m. Friday.

A nearby neighbor had a flag pole blown over. WGEL was told by another neighbor that the storm came out of the southwest, and for about five minutes, the wind was very strong and it rained hard.

Amounts of rain varied, but one resident said he measured over one inch. WGEL Radio received other reports of over an inch of rain, especially in southern Bond County. Many people passed Friday night without any rain or storms. The National Weather Service has the threat of rain and storms back in our forecast for this work week.
