A storm that moved over Carroll County on Sunday evening left a path of damage. Several farms have buildings and equipment that need repairs. However, everyone affected is grateful the damage is not more serious.

As Joe Jilderda looks at the damage the storm left behind he vividly remembers what that storm looked like.

"I saw a big cloud dust probably about 2 to 3 miles away," says Jilderda, "I beat it to the house and went into the basement."

He heard loud noises and hail hitting his roof.

"When things had settled down I come out and looked," says Jilderda, "I saw a lot of damage."

The barn, which was built in 1905, has a lot of damage. He does not know if it can be salvaged.

"The insurance adjuster will have to come out and he'll have to decide what to do with the barn," says Jilderda.

The farm's wind mill was no match for the storms strong wind and it toppled over.

"We hadn't used that for years, but it was kind of a neat thing to have," adds Jilderda.

The Carroll County farmer's primary concern is his home's roof. Several shingles blew off and he's worried about more damage.

"I got a carpenter looking at it right now," says Jilderda, "I want to at least temporarily fix it so it doesn't leak."

Even though his farm has a lot of damage, Jilderda knows it could of been of worse.

"We're survivors, we'll get it cleaned up and make it look like it didn't happen," Jilderda adds.
