Residents on Town Homes Loop in Lafayette are cleaning up debris and establishing a new normal after severe weather damaged their homes early Saturday morning.
Polly Joseph, a resident on Town Homes Loop explains, “We are out of a home at this moment. We don’t have anywhere to go. This is my primary residence. It’s going to be hard for us because this is where we live; this is all we have.”
Polly Joseph and her daughters are thankful to be alright after a tree fell on their home early Saturday morning.
She says her daughter heard a loud noise and woke her up just as a tree was falling on their garage.
“We were sleeping and my daughter heard a loud noise and she came in the room and woke me up. I got out of bed. We came to this. It was a tree fell on top of the house,” Joseph adds.
