Green Valley, Arizona (KGUN) — Green Valley was hit hardest by last night’s storm.

Along the roads of the Green Valley, almost every depression on the road shows a mountain of sand. This is a free gift that the streets were filled with water when the storm was at its peak. “

However, most of the damage was not caused by water. It was from the wind.Trees and Okotiro fell along the Abrego Drive in the Green Valley

“Wait a minute. It’s not my chair.”

Margaret Bage noticed what the storm looked like a neighbor’s chair that blew into her backyard. She is still organizing how the wind scrambles some things around her home.

Some delicate things were intact while the wind was moving heavy objects.

“It was uneven,” she says. Pointing to a heavy wood and steel bench, she says, “It was rolled twice.”

Tena Hart was worried that water might enter her house, but it remained dry. She plans to prepare for the next strong wind.

“I think I’ll start moving a lot of things out of the yard into the courtyard, because I don’t want to be knocked down and fly into someone else’s yard, break windows, etc.” I’m going to beat it well. “

The storm knocked down a large power line and covered the power cable across the intersection of La Canada and Duvalmine Road. The Tucson Electric Power crew was working on line repairs alongside many other locations.

By mid-afternoon, the company’s website reported that about 2,700 customers were still out of power. To help them keep themselves and their food cool, TEP distributed water and ice.

Melissa Bendegno Bryant said when she picked up the ice. It’s not their fault, but they help the community so that no one loses what they can save in their home. “

And while they’re clearing up from the Thursday night storm, the people of Green Valley know that more storms are in the forecast.
