Area Residents Try to Pick Up the Pieces After Last Weeks Storms

Severe weather has been the story this week across the South Plains and now residents are cleaning up the damage. NewsChannel 11's Jennifer Vogel gives us a tour of the damage that's still out there.

Storm season is alive all over the South Plains.

"The hail was as big as my fist," said one Lubbock resident.

"We have a new baby kinda scary," said another.

And with the storms come damage reports, two mobile homes near Post blew to the ground.

Neighbor Jose Cubias saw everything.

"The windows broke out and we laid down," he said.

Frenship High sophomore Seth Moore says he didn't know what to do when the hail started to brake out his truck window.

"This is where the 2nd one hit, it was scary," he said.

Chief Meteorologist John Robison says if you get stuck in a storm, you should stay in your car it will protect you from lightning and hail, and you will have access to the radio for information. The only time you need to leave the car is if you know a tornado is coming.

Severe weather can come and go and take everything you have in a matter of seconds. Some can start over and build again, but others, don't know if they can survive another hit.

"Are you going to rebuild," we asked Cubias, "I don't know," he replied. "After all this mess, we're gonna see in the morning."
