As scattered showers continued to fall across Owen County Monday, one Owen County farmer began the cleanup process after a confirmed tornado just over the Grant County line on Pettit Pike destroyed four of his tobacco barns.
Asa Phillips, a longtime Owen County farmer and first district magistrate said the damages took place Saturday afternoon.
“They were all pretty new,” Phillips said. “I built them myself in 97 or 98 with a few others helping me. We’re going to put them back, we’ve got to.”
The barns were each insured at about $40,000.
