16th-22nd…Three cows and a calf died and several homes sustained minor damage when severe weather rolled through Putnam County Sunday afternoon. The Putnam County Emergency Management Agency believes the damage is a result of straight line winds. Nickel sized hail was also reported, according to the National Weather Service. Hollister fire department Chief Robert Davenport said two barns were destroyed during the storm that hit the area just before 2 p.m. At least 15 firefighters responded to the area of Red Oak Lane to clear the roads of heavy debris and assess damage. Hunter Davis, 15, says his father's cows died after being struck by lightning. "I actually seen the lightning bolt come down and it made like a pop sound and whenever it made that the sound the cows just kind of fell over," said Davis. The Davis family property near Red Oak Lane suffered some fence damage and a two-thousand dollar loss with the unfortunate loss of their cattle.
Davis says he was home when the storm hit and said it sounded like a train. "I looked out the window and I seen the wind, the trees just blowing over everything, and limbs just coming by and I looked out you could barely see in front of you, you could probably see about 15 feet in front of you," added Davis. No human injures have been reported, Davenport said.
