Railroad crews tried to hoist a broken power pole out of the ground. A downed silo waiting it's turn. Although most of the damage was outside of the city limits, inside the city of Anton, we found this, broken limbs in people's yards.
That is until we ran into Hector Solis. He took us back to his house to show us the tree limb that fell on top of his house. The limb was too heavy for Hector to pick it up alone to show us.
"It was pretty bad. It shook my wife up pretty bad. She wanted to run out the back, but I told her to stay inside the house," said Hector.
His friend Arthur Amalla is doing his friend a favor. He's fixing three holes on top of Hector's house while Hector thinks about the tree he never considered to be threatening. "My boss man wanted to cut it down, but I said no. I like the shade. But if another wind comes in and those limbs come down, it will take out half my house," said Hector.
Anton had no reports of injuries during last night's storm. The city's power was restored earlier Thursday morning.
