A strong storm whipped through Butte County on Wednesday, the powerful winds tore apart a riding stable north of Oroville.

Neighbors took a pictures of the store around 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday in the pasture. Strong winds pushed leaves, broke fences, and lifted roofs off of multiple sheds. 

Charlotte Griffith lives on the property and said it was frightening. 

Griffith said the wind tore through a fence freeing two horses. Those horses were chased down and are safe in a different pen.

No animals or people were hurt.

Lightning-caused fires will be a concern over the next few days as thunderstorms enter the forecast. We stay warm to begin next week but cool into the 70s by Wednesday.
