Homeowner Brian Richardson said he had been living in the home for more than 20 years.
"I'm just still shocked myself," Richardson said.
We just spoke with Mr. Richardson who is the owner of the home badly damaged in the overnight storms in Enfield. He walked around his home of more than 20 years in disbelief. #ABC11 pic.twitter.com/yZJaf9SYAX— Ana Rivera (@AnaRiveraABC11) April 15, 2019
"I was laying right here in the room," he explained. "Next thing you know, I hear a noise sounded like a train."
Richardson said his next thought was to check on his mother, who was in a different section of the house.
"I'm just glad we're alive," he said. "That's all that matters right now. I'm just glad we're alive. Everything else can be replaced."
Richardson said he plans to rebuild his home.
A local reverend, who spent the morning driving through the area to check on residents, said he saw the home before the tragic incident.
"It's devastating to me to see this house come off the foundation," Reverend Andrew West said. "Nobody got hurt; I thank God for it. That's all I can say is thank God because it could've been worse than what it was."
