It was just a normal freight train-type sound... Next thing you know, I got a skylight in my kitchen.
Weather services say unseasonably warm Christmas weather may have helped the storms. Some 30,000 people were left without power, and some very shocked.

Local Jim Shelton says things went very fast.
“It was just a normal freight train-type sound,” he said. “We all went in to our safe areas and hunkered down for a little bit and 15 seconds later, it was over with. It was gone. Next thing you know, I got a skylight in my kitchen.”
