A month and a half after a devastating storm swept across the Inland Northwest, Riverside Mobile Home Park continues to rebuild after that storm destroyed over 40 homes.
It took over two weeks after the storm for residents to get power and just last week the boil order on their water was finally lifted. Now the biggest concern is cleaning up the mess the storm left in its wake, with large piles of lumber and debris scattered all over the north end of the park and destroyed homes sitting vacant just as they did the day the storm hit.
Despite the damage and spirits remain high among residents.
?A whole lot of us have gotten our lives together, some of us have decided to move on and everything but a bunch of us is staying here and rebuilding,? resident Lonnie Jones.
Jones said a lot of progress has been made but there it still a lot of work to be done. They don't have access to the equipment and resources needed to remove everything.
?We don't have a whole lot of money like some people do have. Everyone is looking at that dollar figure sign and that's not what it's about right now,? he said.
