Apartment resident Vanessa Guereca has lived in the complex for 19 years and said it was still hard to form the right words.

"We didn't think much of it... We didn't take cover," Guereca said. "I guess I had that mentality that we get this [weather] all the time. It's not going to happen."

And after hearing some "boom sounds," she initially thought it was only kids running.

She later discovered that the noise was in fact three of her apartment building's roofs flying off.

The Red Cross and other groups are currently helping affected residents with relocating. No injuries were reported.
