What a crazy and frightning night. The size of the hail bouncing off our roof was amazing. The wind that occured was very powerful and frightning. The trees that were uprooted from the ground and falling down was scary. It left us feeling very worried on where is the next one going to fall. We lost power from 6:45pm to 7:40am and most of us did not get a good night sleep but all day our neighborhood has been cleaning up the mess from last night.
