Homes Clean Up After Windsor Colorado Tornado

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Alliance

The clean up here has been inspiring and amazing.  What a place to call home!  My daughter Hannah and I went out the other day and just started to clean where needed, the next thing we knew we were joined by other volunteers.  It was an amazing experience.  We over filled a 20 yard dumpster in 30 minutes!  A great experience.  Once it was full we all walked to another area and started again.

As to the lives of the victims is still stressful.  There is need for men's and children clothing (Women always seem to have clothing to share).  Diapers, formula, toys and the like are still needed as well.  The biggest task in this area is getting the farmers back in the fields.  Before this can happen the fields need to be walked shoulder to shoulder and the debris picked up.  Many groups are going out daily to get this done.

Insurance and FEMA papers are in the works as well.  So far those affected seem to be happy with the process.  They are securing rentals (now in shortage) and gathering the pieces together.  Many have to wait to see what kind of damage was done to the frame of the home.  From what I am understanding many homes will be taken to 2 X 4 stage and evaluated by a structural engineer.  Once that report is received they will determine the next step.

Hi Kendra,

Our hearts go out to you all.  Looking at these pohotos reminds me of visiting New Orleans for the NAR convention after Katrina.  It's devastating, but with volunteers like you they will be able to move forward.
