Strong winds, hail, possible tornado cause damage Monday night

    A Monday evening storm wreaked havoc on some grain bins and equipment at the Tim and Laura Jackson farm west of Woonsocket.
The same storm came with strong winds and hail, which cut a swath of destruction through fields a couple miles wide and few long.
At the Jackson farm, a grain bin of corn exploded and ended up in a twisted pile across the road.
A number of pieces of equipment were also scattered about and knocked over by what is thought to be a tornado.
Corn, bean and alfalfa fields in that area also suffered heavy damage, stripping the already drought-injured plants down to their stems in many areas.
The storm brought with it from .75 to an inch of very welcome rain.
