Owner Fredda Stevenson, employees and volunteers are picking up debris and rebuilding the Middegate Station, east of Fallon after the bar and motel were hit with what National Weather Service Meteorologists are calling 'thunderstorm outflow wind damage' on Monday afternoon.

Stevenson told News 4-Fox 11 that the roof was ripped of the motel, cracking walls and ceilings in the process. She says the laundry room was hit the hardest and will require extensive repairs.

The National Weather Service in Reno says it is impossible to confirm a tornado based off of the photographed damages at this point. They are asking anyone who may have captured photos of this thunderstorm to contact them to help them further assess.
