HOWARD COUNTY- One man is picking up after high winds tore most of the roof off his house near Higbee.

Relatives say straight-line winds damaged Danny Hess' house and barn. In addition to the roof damage, several windows in his house were broken. The winds also took one corner off of his barn. Hess' cousin says nobody was in the house when the damage occurred. His cousin says Hess lost a house to a tornado four years ago and had recently built his current home in a different spot. Volunteer firefighter Jim Wilson says several other buildings in the area suffered different amounts of damage.

Hess could not be reached for comment. Relatives say he will live with his parents until his house is repaired.
