From downed fences to torn up trees, people living in Versailles are coming outside today to take stock of the damage caused by last night's storms. One woman describes a dramatic scene.
"The sky was completely black and you saw the clouds were moving really fast!" says Deb Lause.
Lause and her family weathered the storm inside their Versailles home. She says they couldn't believe their eyes when they came outside.
"We were just kind of shocked to see that this could actually be happening out here and it went so quickly that you didn't even realize how fast it could actually happen."
Everett Tucker was helping clean up the mess around the neighborhood today. He says the clouds that rolled through were a fearsome sight.
"They were terrible. Black, rolling, and...I don't know how you could beat scary. They were just scary looking!" says Tucker.
Along Marsailles Rd, the storm left a very defined path, tearing through trees and plowing through fences that stood in its way. The damage went through at least four properties. Versailles dispatchers say they're not aware of any injuries caused by the storm. Everett Tucker is glad the storm only left property damage.
"From what I see, my goodness, we're just lucky. It could have been a lot worse," he says.
We're told a team from the National Weather Service Is going to be here in Versailles today to investigate the damage caused by the storm.
