Trees snapped in half and roofs torn apart that's what residents in Johnson County are dealing with after violent storms ripped through their area.
For the Sweat Family business on Thursday is anything but an ordinary day at the office; employees are cleaning up after Wednesday's chaotic storm.
"We knew we were suppose to get some rain and thunderstorms," says Nathan Oliver, but he says no one expected the storm to be so severe.
Wain Sweat, owner of Sweats Portable Business, says the storm lasted only a few minutes. "I thought part of the house blew off. It happened before I had time to get scared," says Sweat.
After the storm settled he went to investigate the noise. "I heard water hitting on the cement. I know something came through the house then," says Sweat.
Sweat's wife, niece, and granddaughter ran into a bathroom right before fierce winds knocked a tree onto their house.
Jean Sweat says, "[It] felt like the house shook all over."
The storm damage cost the Sweat Family a few thousand dollars because 6 portable buildings were thrown across the road and destroyed, but the Sweat Family couldn't be happier.
"We're so blessed no one was hurt. The boys in the shop were fine. The ones of us in the house is great... we just have so much to be thankful for," says Jean Sweat.
