Albany -- With wind gusts up to 40 miles per hour this afternoon, one Albany woman was shocked to get a phone call that the roof of her mobile home had blown off.

The roof of Melva Quimby's mobile home in the Countryside Village was peeled back by winds. Several months ago her trailer was damaged in a storm, but nothing could prepare her for the shock she got today.

"It was a small portion over the side where my bedroom is, but I never imagined that it would just go like that," she said.

Melva's worried about worse weather tonight. She called her insurance adjustor in an attempt to get help quickly. They say it will be three or four days before someone will be out to see the home.
