Frankenstorm's Fury Barrels Down On Chincoteague Homes

Posted: Updated:

CHINCOTEAGUE, Va. - Accomack County residents are still reeling from Frankenstorm's fury.

"Never seen a hurricane that big and fast, last that long, that was the problem," said resident, Mike Jester.

Accomack County residents are still reeling from Frankenstorm's fury. While the flooding has mostly receded, downed trees seem to be the real problem.

"We heard them snapping all night and falling, and we go out and see trees falling all night long," said Jester.

He says he's been clearing the backyards of these massive landmines that destroy anything in their path. One mobile home was nearly crushed by a tree, and a nearby shed was demolished. Another home nearly dodged the bullet with minimal damage.

"They didn't hear anything until the chimney fell off the top of the house and fell down on the deck, then they saw the tree coming," said resident, Leonard Jester.

In another mobile home community off of Taylor road, it looks like, the uprooted tree took the trailer with it. It also tore apart the skirt and folded one part of it like an accordion. By the looks of it, those living there are probably finding a new home.

Residents in that tight-knit community are really helping each other out. Several people were driving around - and stopping by damaged homes, asking if they needed help.
