Winds Do Damage Across Lubbock

Thursday, clean-up is underway across Lubbock after near hurricane-force winds blew into town Wednesday night.

The winds came from nearly every direction - pounding the city of Lubbock and outlying areas for close to a half hour.

At the Sudsy Springs Car Wash on 82nd Street just south of University, those 60 mph winds ripped off the roof of the building and tossed it into the street. Thursday, clean-up begins and the car wash is shut down until that's complete.

And in the 1900 block of 71st Street a tree was uprooted by the winds and it landed on the neighbor's roof. The tree's owner says he's never experienced anything like Wednesday night.

"I've been here for 52 years and seen a lot of wind storms, but nothing like that," said Dale Blevins.

Blevins says the tree is a total loss and will have to be removed.
