Many people cleaning up after severe storm hits Pulaski County

People all across the state are cleaning up what yesterday's severe storms left behind.

From downed trees to collapsed barns, there's a lot of work in store in the days ahead for some people in Pulaski County.

Part of a barn was actually blocking Highway 935 for a while yesterday, and state highway workers returned Tuesday morning to clear debris from the rights of way.

Up the road, Jerry Gentry and his workers were cleaning up after the storm damaged several buildings on his dairy farm.

When asked where his cattle was during the storm, Gentry said, "Part of them were in the building that went down. Most got out, but a couple in there that the building fell on."

The public safety director says to his knowledge, there were no injuries. Gentry says even though his cattle were right in the middle of the storm, they only suffered a few scratches.

Emergency officials say they don't know if the damage was caused by a tornado or just strong winds.
