MOFFAT, TX (KXXV) -

Half of a barn roof blew in at a property located in the 9100 block of FM 2409 during a storm on Tuesday afternoon.

Residents said around 1 p.m. part of the roof of the barn went airborne 250 feet, leaving the barn animals without shelter and breaking a power line.

"[It sounded] like a big train, like roaring," resident McPherson said. "If you look at one side [of the property] nothing was touched, only one side. It took it out on one side and nothing else."

Once the storm started, McPherson said he went into his house with his wife. While they were watching TV and the power went out.

McPherson recalls looking outside of the window and seeing half of the barn missing.

"By the time I realized what was going on, I walked to the front yard and it went all the way across the house, took out the power line and it sent half of the roof against the RV that I have out there and part of it on the pasture," McPherson said.

As of 10 p.m., McPherson didn't have power and claimed his power company had not gone to his property to solve the issue after calling them multiple times.

His biggest concern about being in the dark on Tuesday night was his wife who has medical issues needing electricity to use her breathing machine.

In the meantime, they're using the small generator to keep her machine on and the food in the refrigerator cool. 

McPherson said it will take two to three days to repair the roof.
