Southern Hills residents pick up the pieces left behind by yesterday’s storm

Local News
Cleanup is underway for many people after yesterday’s raging storm.
 
“This is definitely one of those things you think will never happen to you, then it does, ” said Anna Windham, Homeowner.
Anna Windham and her husband walk through their home for the first time since a large tree crashed through their roof.
“We just heard this loud. The loudest boom I’d ever heard in my whole life and the whole house shook,” said Windham.
She says immediately her and her husband began frantically running through the house trying to salvage valuables.
“We were able to get out with the most important things. Documents and stuff and a few clothes and that’s pretty much it,” said Windham.
During the cleanup process, a pipe busted. Flooding the entire house, ruining just about everything.
“Our hope is in our savior, in our relationship with the Lord and not in our possession and not in our home. It’s stuff that will be replaced. It’s a little bit of an inconvenience, but it will be fine.”
The Windhams are now staying with family and although they know this is the beginning of a long road ahead they say their faith will see them through.
“We don’t put our faith in these things, we put our faith in Jesus Christ. He was the one who got us out alive, protected us. So you know we’re just thankful to be here.”
An adjuster is set to visit the house Monday to assess the cost in damages.
