Strong winds destroyed an Elk Creek livestock barn Wednesday night, scattering planks and debris more than 100 yards from the site of the century-old structure.
Nathan Lawson–whose family has owned the barn since the 1950s–said it was used daily to feed cattle. It also stored hay and equipment.
“It was in good shape,” he said. Repairs had been done to the foundation and posts just last year.
Lawson initially believed a tornado caused the damage.
