Storm clean-up a neighborhood effort in Radcliff

Posted: Updated:

RADCLIFF, KY (WAVE) - Storm clean-up continued into the evening Thursday throughout Hardin County after a string of storms snapped utility poles and toppled trees.

Neighbors near Radcliff's Scenic Drive spent hours picking up the pieces after an early morning storm left behind a path of destruction.

"The neighbor's tree is over the fence in my yard now," said Brigitte Wells.

Earlier in the morning, Wells said her family had been startled by the storm's strength.

"My husband was running through the hallway and he said, 'let's go to the basement, let's go to the basement' and I said, 'what?' He said, 'I felt the house shake!'," recalled Scenic Drive resident Brigitte Wells.

"I heard a whirlwind coming around," said Carlus Cox, a Scenic Drive resident.

"At five, or 5:30 this morning, the roof just popped right off and then a bunch of rain come pouring into the house," said Deborah Clark while assisting neighbors along Kingswood Way. "We're here as a group to help them to move their items to their new home."

That teamwork existed throughout the neighborhood Thursday evening as the close knit community worked together to get the massive clean-up job done.

"Everybody needs help," said Scenic Drive resident Julian Cox. "So, that's what we were doing."

The Red Cross and Radcliff Police Department also assisted neighbors in need.
