Recovering Vandalia Residents Get Another Tornado Scare
VANDALIA -- People in Vandalia are just three and a half months removed from an EF1 tornado ripping through their homes.
Marion Schwamberger remembers it like it was yesterday.
"Ever since the tornado came I jumped at everything because...I don't know why, I just do, It's just weird," said Schwamberger.
The tornado scared every resident in this neighborhood when it came through last Halloween.
And when the sirens and the rain came last night, "It was a little nerve-racking," said Ashley Larson who was at work. "I got my nerves all jumbled up because all I had was my crew at work and I told him we need to hurry up and get done or go to a back room or something because it made me so nervous."
"After last night I was watching television and they said more storms and I'm thinking I don't want to do this again because that was pretty frightening the first time," said Schwamberger.
Even though most of the neighborhood has been cleaned up threats of more storms has put everyone here back on edge.
"It's very frustrating and it's very nerve-racking to have all of this and I wish that it was over I'm almost thinking about moving," said Schwamberger.
Especially since work repairing damage from the October tornado is still not done. Marion's still living here with a tarp in place of the ripped off roof.
"It's leaking now," said Schwamberger. "I called last night to tell them it was leaking again I hope they come before another rain because I really would not like rain running down my walls again."
"The tarp got blown off by the wind and we brought it back down," said Rusty Belles of Route Concepts Real Estate. "We have it scheduled to have a new roof put on in a week. We can't have any of our tenants having water damage in their home."
The house next door got their new roof Friday. Roofers say the winter weather is to blame for the delay.
"We are still waiting for our door to get fixed too so there is still a lot of work to be done but I think they are waiting for nicer weather so we could be done quicker," said Larson.
While they wait, they continue to pray for no more storms."Just never know what God is going to bring you," said Schwamberger.
