[BACKGROUND NOISES]

ALYSSA MACKENZIE: That is a pretty hefty limb. I'm looking at the damage from the day after, when it's a lot safer. And this big tree fell down here. It split all the way through these poor people's fence.

This area got hit really hard. Tree limbs are down over here. And this was completely underwater for, I would say, a good hour or so. I have quite a bit of work to do to clean up some stuff over here.
