"All I could see was trees in my front yard," said Myra Quick.
Quick came home to a mess of branches and bark. A tree in her yard was torn out of the ground. It took power lines down with it.
"Then, I looked across the street to see how lucky I was," said Quick. "My neighbor's house had been torn in half."
One gust of wind left Geanetta Gary in need of a new home.
Gary was at work when the storm hit, but her 14-year-old daughter was inside.
"I got a call from my daughter," said Gary. "She said a tree limb had come through the house."
Limbs, leaves, and the whole tree came crashing down leaving the teenager running for cover.
"She heard a big crash and went to her room and got in the closet," said Gary.
The teen then kicked out a window to get out, and called her mother to come home.
"When I got out, my daughter said 'Mom,' and when I saw her over there standing I just started screaming," said Gary.
The Red Cross is putting Gary and her daughter up in a hotel for two nights, and are even helping with security deposits for when they find a new place to live.
The power was knocked out in the area.
