As a storm rolled toward Colby, many people didn't hear a thing until it was already upon them. Once it passed, residents started the clean up immediately, but as a community.

The storm damaged barns, farming equipment, and sheds. It left houses standing and families intact, which is a blessing many people here are counting.

Tiffany Brueswitz, a resident of Colby told NewsChannel 7, “I’m in awe. I couldn't believe what happened. Our neighbors got hit hard but we are just so grateful that no one got hurt or lost their life.”

Tiffany says there is a lot of clean-up to do, but the community will pull together to help out. She says many strangers are even stopping by to see what they can.
