Tucson, Arizona (KGUN) —Recent storms have left Tucson with more than just severe floods. This year’s monsoon also caused destruction.
The monsoon struck again, this time destroying Carport and rattling the family in a house near Fifth Avenue and Long Fellow Avenue.
Tucson has recently received several severe thunderstorm warnings. However, hearing about an advisory is one thing, and being influenced by an advisory is one thing.
“It sounded like it was right in front of the hurricane. It was very extreme,” Elva Lovato said.
Lovato recalls that the lightning bolt at night illuminated the night sky. She describes it as a gust, thunder, and a storm that caused destruction.
“I was scared. I tried to open the door, but I couldn’t even open it because I was pushed away,” she told KGUN9.
Then, when she left the next morning, she saw a fallen carport. She panicked and rushed to work, so she turned to bystanders for help.
“They … picked up both sides and I pulled out the car. Thank God. It wasn’t too damaged … and as soon as they picked it up I retreated. .. Boom, it fell a bit, “Rovato said.
She says it’s been less than a year since she got the carport.
Thankfully, she’s insured, but Lovato says the agency is backed up by many claims.
“Currently, there are more than 500 cases and damage is pending,” she told KGUN9.
Lovato and her sister Rosa O’Hara did even more damage to the backyard.
“This year’s damage was enormous. Of course, there is a tree behind our house. Damage to the cactus of the elephant plant. It’s definitely something I’ve never been delighted with before. “I did,” added Lovato.
She is grateful that they still have a roof over their heads while they are out of the carport.
“As you know, material things are just material things. The only thing we can rejoice in is that the house didn’t fall to us,” she told KGUN9.
