Tornado touches down in Taylor County

 

Local farmer Rod Phillips and his wife were in an equipment building on their property on Cave Road around 6 p.m. Saturday evening when the winds began to pick up outside.

Phillips said they were finishing feeding their dogs when they heard the winds begin to gain strength and they began to feel the building shake.

The two lay down on the floor of the building, hoping to remain safe as the storm passed through. The worst part of the storm probably only lasted about 45 seconds, Phillips said.
