Parts of the home was a mile and half away from the home and the home built cheaply. LOL Does it even ring a bell to you that the wind was pretty bad?

Sounds like a microburst.

Actually the roof didn't collapse. A tornado hit it, pieces of the home were found about a mile away in another sub division. The debris including the garage door were 200 yards away and the rain then caused severe water damage.
Secondly nothing is made to last anymore weather it be your car your home etc, its disgusting.

Reason I say it was a tornado was because of the pattern left of debris (360 degrees around the area), and it left a long trail including several other dwellings.

Look at the picture, the ruf did not collaps at all, in fact the trusses are still intact. Looks like the truss company did a good job and contractor who set the truss did a good job but who ever put down the plywood got lazy with the nail gun.

Hopefully you realize how stupid that comment was. I don't agree with the cost/design of the school but to wish bad things to happen to an environment that children are in, that's about as simple minded as one could be.

I would love to know who built this house, so that I may never buy from them.

First of all the roof did not collapse. It was ripped off. The portion that did not come off was lifted and set back down on the frame. Windows were blown out and all the doors were ripped off the hinges. People need to get facts before make comments. The news never even talked to the home owner to know what happened. Get the facts,

the loss of your home is a heartbreaking tragedy and all the lame comments are hardly of benefit to any one!

So Matt, if the weather "may" have been the cause, what other scenarios do you propose? Was your editor at lunch when you submitted this story? No homeowner comments, no comment from EMS, no comment from the National Weather Service, not even a comment from one of your own crack(headed) weather casters.

Thanks. About two years ago, a home burned to the ground in the same subdivision. Cause: a faulty washer. Maybe there is something to that "cheaply built homes" thing.

Sorry, Liberalace, but as usual your comments are meaningless. A faulty washer has absolutely nothing to do with a home being cheaply built. When that house caught fire, the washer was the problem, not the wiring to the washer.

Fox Hollow Ridge which is in the Fox Hollow Subdivision of Lake Monticello. If you take 53 going toward Palmyra it's approximately 1 mile past the Food Lion shopping center. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. Thankful noone was hurt. And it had to have been a microburst or a tornado. Amazing to see the damage.
are you kidding

Kinda funny. I'd bet a million bucks that all the same people complaining about things being built cheaply have been complaining about the high school being built too lavishly.

You just can't make some people happy. LMAO!!!

Did the builders put the washer in or the owner of the house? Also, Peter, note I used the word "maybe" in my post. Often, the builders select the line of appliances to go into the house. Learn the difference between "maybe" and "definitely," chap.
