    Hi everyone,
    Yesterday here in central N.C we had a BAD storm with hi winds,hail,rain and a small tornado that lasted about 10 seconds.There was a red oak on our property becide the loft and when the wind got up,it fell and crushed the loft[​IMG].Today we cut up the tree and hauled of alot of brush and we will start rebuilding next week.Thankfully there were no deaths.I found alot of my SQ birds on the ground and a few in the trees.
    Just thought i would share with everyone.

    Thanks,
    Logan

    So sorry! I'm glad none of your birds were killed. [​IMG]

    OMG...I'm so sorry! Last August...hurricane Irene blew down almost every tree on our property...and we have a lot of trees! They fell all around...and right up against our house and my dove loft...but didn't make any damage...we were very lucky!
    There is a tree right next to my loft that I'm afraid is going to fall on it someday during a bad storm.
