Some parts of Johnson County were hit pretty hard with yesterday's storms.

Most homes along Middle Fork Road at Hager Hill were destroyed.

Emergency crews closed the road because of downed power lines and trees.

Officials said they were not sure if anyone was missing, but they combed the hillsides searching the debris for anyone that might be trapped.

People who live on Middle Fork Road say they are shocked to see the damage.

"I really didn't expect it. I mean I sort of figured there would be a tornado, but I didn't expect anything this bad," said Tyler Butcher.

There is currently no word if anyone was found in Hager Hill.

Johnson County Central High School has been set up as a shelter.
