‘Just grateful’: Cattle farm damaged by Friday morning storms

COUNTY OF ESCAMBIA, Ala. (WKRG) – Extensive damage was left at Perdido River Farms near Atmore on Friday as severe weather spread through the area.

John English, the farm’s general manager, said severe storms destroyed the farm’s equipment and hay barns.

Trucks were seen stuck under the collapsed tin roof of the equipment barn. Tin was thrown around the property.

On the other side of Poarch Road, a hay barn was also destroyed. Tin was seen wrapped around fences.

The damage cannot be repaired, said English, but luckily no one was injured. The farm workers had the day off due to this risk of severe weather. English said it could have been worse.

“Once I got here to observe and check on what was going on, it was pretty devastating with the amount of damage we took to the hay and equipment barns,” English said. “We have trucks that appear to be under the barns. I was very surprised, but grateful for who we work for. They were able to let us down to the travel desks today so no one was harmed or hurt here. Just grateful.

English said no livestock were harmed during the storms.
