Yesterday Just before 6 o'clock yesterday
evening- the storm with recorded winds
of up to 50-miles per hour- swept
through downtown.

It peeled back the roof, picked
up an air conditioning unit and even
hit the neighboring Roanoke Times-
before coming to rest in the parking
lot between the two structures.

Museum Director Bob Dills said
there's no word on just how much damage
was caused by the storm.

He says they will assess the
current damage, let things dry out, and
then assess it again.

The fire broke out just before
five yesterday at this home on Meadors
Spur Road.

When the call first came in,
firefighters were told there could be a
meth lab inside so haz mat crews were
called out.

It was quickly determined there
were no hazard materials inside.

The Fire Chief says the fire
started in the kitchen. An
investigator with the Sheriff's
Department says this could be arson.
