A fast-moving storm only took a half hour to knock out power lines, tear off roof shingles, and even leave trees on top of houses. "It was really bad for a minute, it didn't last more than a half hour I don't think and it took trees down, roofs, " says Elkins resident Cathy Varney
Varney takes care of an Elkin's homeowner, whose roof was damaged from the storm.
"Just wind took it off, neighbors said the whole roof lifted up and slammed back down and then the shingles just started going," adds Varney.
But roof damage wasn't the only sight in Elkins, trees landing completely on top of houses and fences being uprooted were another.
