SHEFFIELD, Ala. (WHNT) – Thursday’s powerful storms may have only lasted minutes, but those moments changed the life of one Sheffield dentist.

Dentist Kenneth Springer says Thursday was a normal work day until he heard the unusual.

“The bottom fell out.  And we heard a big crash like sound. And a part of the roof had torn and then it came down and hit on the building,“ said Springer.

The roof came off the building where he owns a family dentistry.

He says the building has experienced severe weather, but says he’s never had anything like this happen.

“This whole area has been so blessed. It’s just one of those deals where the winds hit the right spots at the wrong time I guess,” said Springer.

The two story building is located in downtown Sheffield.

The first floor was an attorney’s office and it’s now flooded with water. The water is now leaking into Dr. Springer’s office.

“All of our power is shut off right now. But hopefully, by Monday we will be back,” said Springer.

A desire that hopefully won’t be washed away by Mother Nature.
