After the storm passed, I went outside to see what damages had been incurred. Thank goodness, nobody's houses or cars were damaged. Nobody was injured too. Most of the neighbors came out and we related our experiences to one another. One neighbor had a frame picture fall and shatter some glass. Another neighbor had one of the zinc roof pieces blow into her house compound. Thankfully a pillar blocked the piece from hitting her car. A few houses were without electricity.
Later a few guys came to collect the zinc roof pieces laying on the road. My guess is they were from the gas station.
I'm very thankful that I decided to go outside to be with my kids. I was only outside a few minutes before the storm started. I was there to see what was happening and warn them of the danger. My eldest girl would have stood there to watch if I didn't ask her to get inside. They saw what was happening but it didn't incur in their minds that there was danger.
Here are some of the pictures I took.
I'm standing on my porch. That is the gas station.
One piece of the roof lying across the road right in front of my house. Thank goodness it didn't fall on my house.
Didn't realize until later that there was havoc at the back of my house too. My clothes stand had fallen. The other clothes stand was initially on the cement area was pushed out into the garden. Needless to say, all my clothes got wet. And I just hung it up to dry a few minutes earlier. All have to be washed again.
I looked over at the gas station and they had stuff hanging down from the roof.
A neighbor's house with their awning collapsed.
I heard they just put that up not too long ago.
Walking up the hill, I got to peek at the damages to the gas station's roof.
My immediate neighbor's awning was torn off and nearly blew into my porch. Thank goodness the fence stopped it. Or it would have damaged my car and my porch awning.
