A small tornado hit farmland south of Adams Wednesday, tearing apart trees, prying up metal roofs, tossing around 50-gallon drums and jamming a wood plank into the wall of a shed.

"Just metal and two-by-fours and two-by-sixes and two-by-twelves scattered all over," said property owner Larry Williams, who surveyed the damage just after the tornado hit around 5 p.m. Wednesday. "It took 50-gallon steel barrels and moved them a quarter mile out in the field. There was stuff hanging in trees. It looked about like what you see on TV."
