Sheriff Freeman Luttrell could not hide his confusion at the strange incident: like a metaphysical hand, a 22m- 2 aluminum roofing warehouse and weighs nearly 2 tons suddenly lifted up into the air travel more than 10 meters before crashing into the roof of the Pine Grove church and then landing.
The incident happened in the town of Elkhorn, in the state of Kentucky, USA.
The strange thing was that on Monday afternoon that day (May 14), the sky suddenly stopped , the wind blew gently and the sun was light. 'In short, there are no signs of thunderstorms,' said Juanita Long, who lives in the house opposite Pine Grove Church.
Between 2 - 3 noon, two consecutive noises and explosions rang out the quiet atmosphere. Juanita was not surprised because she thought there had been an accident on the road, but only after driving across the church campus, she was startled to find that the matter was far worse than she had imagined: the water pipe broke, the warehouse suddenly lay close to the church instead of 12 meters as usual.
A big hole ' popped ' on the wall that covered vinyl on the side of the church , about 6 meters from the ground. This proves that the " flying warehouse " had a real hit on the roof.

At that time on the church yard there were workers and her son cleaning, but they claimed not to see any unusual signs for 2 hours before the incident.
Pastor Jeff Edwards of Pine Grove church said that there is only a handful of mason tools in the warehouse , absolutely not storing any kind of explosives. The investigation team of Casey County did not find any suspicious traces inside the locked warehouse .
Texas Eastern Gas Company sent people to check the church's gas pipeline but there was absolutely no sign of gas leakage. The National Meteorological Station announced that at the time of the incident, they did not see any signs of a storm in the town of Elkhorn, nor had there been any signs of heavy winds in the surrounding area.
'The only thing I can tell myself now is, maybe the weather has been a little joking around - in other words, this is just an unusual phenomenon of nature' - Sheriff Luttrell said .
