Strong Winds Rip Through Small Community of Pineview

Storm damage in Pineview
This roof ripped from this mobile home as strong winds swept through Monday morning.

The wind was strong enough to peel back the roof of a mobile home.

“It was a dark cloud,” says neighbor Lettie Chancery. “I thought it was a rain cloud but it wasn’t when it got here.”

It even pushed a building off its blocks. “This might be a tornado,” said Kyla White. “It scared me. I was terrified.”

The storm that tore up trees, blew out windows and knocked out the power hit early. “Between 7:30 and 8 o’clock and it was just a loud noise and a real strong wind,” remembers Chancery.

It left almost as quickly as it arrived. “I was speechless. I didn’t know what to think.”

A number of homes in this small community impacted in some way by the winds from the West that streaked across the landscape leaving a path of destruction for all to see.

“To think I would ever see any kind of disaster like this,” says White, “this close to home is just unbelievable.”
