The Polk County Volunteer Fire Department said they only had one report of damage.
Officials said lightening struck a residence on Old Cedartown Road between 6 and 7 p.m. Monday, causing some electrical damage. There were no injuries.
C.D. Garner, owner of Chestnut Hollow Plantation on Floyd Creek Church Road in Taylorsville just inside the Polk County line, is working today to repair damage on his property.
One of his barns had damage after winds blew it off. He said the two horses kept in the barn were unharmed.
He said the storm came up around 6 p.m. as he and his family were planning to go watch fireworks at Dellinger Park in Cartersville.
Not only did the storm blow the roof off of one of his barns, but it left Garner with a large hole in his workshop.
“There’s a limb in my shop. There’s a hole in there as big as a basketball,” Garner said.
The limb in his workshop destroyed Garner’s television antenna, but he said it wasn’t anything he couldn’t fix.
Garner said he is thankful the storm didn’t leave any injuries.
