SMITHFIELD, Ohio - Wednesday's severe storms destroyed a barn and a lot of trees on the property of Smithfield's David Pesta.
Pesta owns the farm and his brother owns the one bordering it. He, too, suffered damage to a barn and trees.  
There was a tornado watch Wednesday night but this was the opposite of a tornado - a micro burst, the downdraft of a thunderstorm moving in a downward motion until it hits the ground and spreads quickly.
David Pesta said his barn was destroyed in minutes and pieces of it were carried down the hill.
