Strong winds rip apart barn in Wilson County

LEBANON, Tenn. (WKRN) - Strong winds ripped aluminum siding off a barn and tossed it across Trousdale Ferry Pike in Wilson County late Wednesday night.

Wooden boards nailed into the barn were pulled loose by the force of the storm.

“About 10:00 p.m. it just sound like a freight train coming through here. Everything was just shaking, the main top of our house was really shaking and rumbling. Everybody came down and gathered around the corner and just waited for it to pass,” said Scott Holcomb, who lives down the road from the barn damaged. 

Sheets of aluminum siding were twisted mid-air and tossed over power lines, landing in trees. Wooden boards were propelled across the street and split with force when it hit the ground. 

“Something hit it, I don’t know what hit it but something hit it,” said Holcomb.

Holcomb and his son were out Thursday morning offering to help their neighbor clean up and grateful no one was hurt.
