High winds strike Vernon Hill farm

South Boston NewsSouth Boston NewsSouth Boston News
Sunday’s mid-afternoon thunderstorm took the roof off of Wanda and Mike McDowell’s barn – at least the open-sided 50 x 90-foot structure where they have cattle sales and store hay. It not only peeled the roof off, the storm also snapped the posts on one side a few feet off the ground.
The other part of the barn, one with walls that is more finished inside with bleachers, chairs and tables that’s used for everything from farm meetings to wedding receptions, was virtually untouched. The McDowells credit their tattered Christian flag, a “Jesus Saves” banner and a wall hanging of Scripture, for saving that portion of the barn.
The building had housed 80-100 people only two days before.
The rest of the McDowells’ cattle farm on Chatham Road in Vernon Hill was virtually unscathed.
