RIVERSIDE MOBILE HOME PARK IS STILL REBUILDING AFTER
A WINDSTORM DESTROYED OVER 40 HOMES NEARLY 6 WEEKS
KXLY 4'S CAITI CURREY IS WORKING FOR YOU WITH A LOOK
AT WHAT RESIDENTS ARE STILL DEALING WITH.
LARGE PILES OF LUMBER AND DEBRIS SCATTERED ALL OVER
THE NORTH END OF THE PARK.
DESTORYED HOMES SIT VACANT JUST AS THEY DID THE DAY
THE STORM FIRST HIT.
BUT SPIRITS ARE STILL HIGH AT RIVERSIDE MOBILE HOME
Lonnie Jones :44
A whole lot of us have gotten our lives toghether,
some of us have decided to move on and everything
but a bunch of us is staying here and rebuilding
KXLY SPOKE WITH LONNIE JONES JUST DAYS AFTER THE STORM
HE SAYS A LOT OF PROGRESS HAS BEEN MADE BUT THERE
IT STILL A LOT OF WORK TO BE DONE.
THEY DON'T HAVE ACCESS TO THE EQUIMENT AND RESOURCES
NEEDED TO REMOVE EVERYTHING.
We don't have a whole lot of money like some people
:06 Everyone is looking at that dollar figure sign
and that's not what it's about right now.
RESIDENTS SAY THEY ARE APPRECIATIVE FOR VOLUNTEERS
WHO CONTINUE TO BRING CLOTHES AND FOOD.
BUT THE REAL HELP THEY NEED NOW IS MAN POWER.
RESIDENTS SAY THE MOST FRUSTRATING PART IS ALL THE
THEY SAY THERE HAS BEEN VERY LITTLE HELP FROM THE
A LOT OF EMPTY PROMISES.
Yes it is private property but there's other places
that have been in disasters and they came and they
helped them out.
JONES SAYS THE COMMUNITY WILL DO WHAT THEY CAN UNTIL
HELP IS PROVIDED.
HE SAYS DESPITE EVERYTHING.
THE COMMUNITY IS CLOSER THAN EVER.
It's a process that we're going through and it's just
going to take some time in getting it back together.
