The storm took a big toll on the Diamond B Cattle Ranch in Madisonville.

An entire barn was torn apart around 8 a.m. Wednesday.

The barn's tin roof ended up hundreds of yards away and even wrapped around fences and trees.

Just down the road several large chemical tanks were thrown around, one even landed on the other side of the road.

The incredible show of nature's force impressed local residents.

"It took so much wind and strength just to carry one of those oil rigs across the road and it landed on the other side on its side," said Madisonville resident Coy Bailey.
