People in Whitley City said the storm came through fast. And for some, if their homes weren't damaged, their businesses were.>
This is what it looked like this morning when Bobby Bruce came to check on his car wash.
It was a hassle for Bruce and not how he wanted to start his day.
"Oh yeah, cause I'm responsible for moving it," said Bruce.
Gaping holes in the roof of his car wash and debris from his business kept customers out.
"Well we were shut down for two or three hours, but I think we're getting ready to open back up now," Bruce added.
"Looked like primarily straight-line winds. We had to remove a roof that had blown off of one structure. We've had several trees down on power lines," said Whitley City Fire Chief Tony Miller.
Miller says even with the damage around the county, one factor made a big difference.
"One thing that worked in our favor was the time of day. People were still primarily at home preparing for the work day, so there wasn't a lot of traffic out during that time when trees were falling on the roadway and power lines were down," said Miller.
A repairman we spoke to on scene said the damage done to both buildings could range between ten and thirty thousand dollars.
