Thomson residents say the storm damage in town looks like a scene from a movie, but the reality is, it's real.  

"In the front driveway,  it  took out ten trees that covered the entire driveway," Tracy Conroy, a Thomson resident said.  "The trailer was shaking and feeling like it is being lifted up. It was pretty scary."

Tracy Conroy says she's lived in Thomson all her life and she's never seen anything like this before.

"Behind our trailer we have a shed. It took the tiles off the stop of the shed. There was another shed back there. It destroyed that," Conroy said.  "We have a Bronco and a boat back there. The boat was flipped over to the Bronco and damaged both the boat and car. My patio furniture is all over the front yard."

But, what scares Conroy most is Thomson residents never got a warning the storm was on its way.

"I think there should be some type of warning, some sirens out here. We're two miles from town and we didn't hear anything. I'm not even sure the sirens went off in town," Conroy said.  

Despite the damage Thomson residents say they are relieved no one was hurt.
 
"I am very happy that everybody is okay and there is no more damage to the house and people. It's mainly cosmetic damage and I'm just glad that's all it was," Thomson resident Brittany Rodda said.
