Dawson-- Frances makes a mess of Terrell County,"When I got here this is what I discovered, a big tree laying over my front door," says Dawson homeowner Artie Garner.
Winds exceeding 40-miles-per-hour from Tropical Storm Frances tore down trees, power lines and even blew apart an old building in Terrell County.
Crews have been removing trees blocking as many as 40 roads and residents are surveying the damage.
A cement block building couldn't withstand Frances,"It was a strong wind, a bad wind last night," says Terrell Road Superintendent Willard Dale.
Winds so strong, they ripped apart the abandoned warehouse in Bronwood, "The building didn't have a top on it and evidently the wind got into it and blew the wall out on the road and cut out a power line."
In Dawson, the Smithville Police Chief came home late Monday to large tree collapsed on his home. Artie Garner says, "I don't really know what the damage will be but I am sure pretty bad. We have some structural damage on top of the house and got a little water in the house, but other than that, we are able to stay here."
Another Dawson family, just a few blocks away on Pecan Street, isn't so lucky. A tall pine tore a hole in their roof causing massive water damage inside.
Around Dawson, downed trees are scattered everywhere and residents are cleaning up. Miriam King says she spent the night in prayer, "And I said Lord I know you took care of us when I was 11 years old when the storm killed my daddy, and I am 80 now."
King's father died 68 years ago when a roof collapsed on him during a bad storm, "April 2, 1936." When asked if she thinks about her father during serious weather conditions, "Everytime there is bad weather, I can't help it."
Bad weather from Frances took a toll on Terrell County, but soon the damage will only be a memory.
Residents near Parrot were still complaining of power outages Tuesday morning, but crews say power should be restored by the end of the day.
