Day 2 of Many For Storm Clean Up in Vandalia After Tornado
VANDALIA -- We were the first to confirm that an EF1 tornado touched down Thursday night in Vandalia, tearing through businesses and homes.
"It must've come right through these yards, it knocked down that telephone pole right there. We had two 35- or 45-foot pines. One went on our roof, punctured three holes, one came forward and took out the corner of the roof and landed towards the driveway," said resident Christie Barron.
We first showed you her yard last night.
"t was like $1,600 just to get the two trees removed," she said.
But the clean up has just began.
"I've had enough," said Darlene Keesee who says she is stumped to see where the 100 mph winds randomly placed items in her yard and her neighbor's yards.
From random boards stuck in the trees to shingles blocks away from their original destination.
"The force of the wind poked the stick right in the shed," said Kessee.
There is of course a lot of debris in front yards but most of that can be picked up and removed. Where people will have the most problem is the damage the tornado caused to the roofs.
"I have no idea without doing a proper estimate but I would say in the tens of thousands," said roofer Joey Beltz. "Trying to get the roof where it will fit water cause this whole section there is basically nothing underneath it. There is some part of the garage that is laying somewhere on top of a house the next street over."
Still, this roof did pretty good compared to the house next door and the garage in between.
"All these houses no one was injured and that's amazing; God is good," said Beltz.
Those are blessings the homeowners don't take for granted.
"The city's response has been phenomenal," said Barron. "They were out here yesterday picking up this and that and separating for us."
