Residents in The Acreage are working to get back on their feet after the outer bands of Tropical Storm Andrea whipped through a neighborhood near Temple Boulevard and 130th Aveneue North.

Tree branches remained blocking several roads and homes hours after high winds brought several trees to the ground.

Shingles on homes lay scattered in backyards and at one home, several large holes in the roof could be seen from the street.

Thursday afternoon the National Weather Service confirmed the damage was caused by a tornado. Early estimates are it was an EF-1 with winds about 100 mph.
