Post and Lake Alan Henry Receive The Most Damage from Storms

In addition to blowing dust, Thursday's storm brought heavy rain and strong winds. Residents at Lake Alan Henry and Post reported 70-mile an hour gusts. 

Thursday night's storms blew in as quickly as they left, but the damage is still visible near Lake Alan Henry, where they received almost six inches of rain Thursday night. North Ridge residents woke up to find a hole in a road near the lake. North Ridge Owner Clyde Kitten says runoff from a nearby field gathered near the road. The water accumulated quickly and washed away the foundation beneath the road.

"It's a little worse than I thought," says Kitten, "because once we got here, we got down and saw where it had washed completely under all the way across the road."

Crews are now working on repairing the road. Kitten says it should be good as new by this weekend.

During the storm in Post, the Garza County Sheriff's Department had several reports of downed power lines and some flooded streets, most of the damage has been cleaned up and all we could find were knocked over trees.

"When I got out this morning, I saw twigs, branches and shingles you can see them laying around," says Post resident Jesse Morales.

Morales now has to repair his roof after winds near 70-miles an hour blew off patches of shingles. Morales says he welcomes the rain, but could do without the clean-up left behind.  

"It's nice to have rain, but not when you gotta have money out of your pocket to repair stuff," says Morales.

In Lubbock, we've received just over an inch of rain throughout the week.
