(KSL News) A Magna neighborhood experienced a big gust today.

A resident described it as a "little tornado," but it wasn't one, and there were no thunderstorms in that area today.

Whatever it was, it caused quite a bit of damage. A metal storage shed was blown apart, a wooden fence came down, a house lost a bunch of shingles, and all sorts of odds and ends thrown all over.

Magna resident Dave Brennam was working in his yard when it hit. He said, "A board went through the side of the garage and came out and smashed the windshield of my truck. A bunch of other boards came through and broke a fence post off and put a big dent in the side of my truck."

Brennam said it was pretty exciting for a few minutes! Fortunately, no one was hurt.
