(KCEN) -- And after last night's storm some Temple residents were left with a huge mess.
One landscape company estimated thousands of dollars worth of damage.
A lot of people were caught off guard by this storm.
Wind gusts of over 60 miles per hour pulled trees out of front yards, and even caused people to relocate.
Temple neighbors woke up to the sound of chainsaws Sunday morning.
Around 3:30 Randy Williams literally watched the roof over his head blow away.
"I thought it was a tornado, the sounds that I heard. I thought it was a freight train," Williams said.
Seven residents at Brentwood Apartment Complex were relocated.
Luckily no one was hurt, But for these neighbors, seeing your home torn apart by mother nature was a scary sight.
Will Morris of the Property Management Company says, "Some of the electrical started to short out so some of the residents were defiantly fearful."
Just across the street, 83 year old Carl Laepnitz had two live oak trees fall in his front yard.
He didn't waste any time cutting them up and loading his tractor full of good fire wood.
"It looks like a tornado came through here."
Landscape companies went door to door giving estimates. The bigger the tree, the higher the price.
According to Martin Besser of Besser Lawn and Landscape, "You could be looking at $600 on up from there. It depends on if you want it cut down and hauled off."
Temple Fire tells us, most of the damage happened in the neighborhoods on West Adams Avenue between I-35 and the H K Dodgen Loop.
"The expectation of tornados and severe weather becomes a higher possibility this time of year." said Ron Stewart of Temple Fire and Rescue.
With a smile on his face, Randy packed what's left of his stuff.
"We all came together in this kind of crisis. And I don't even know 'em. And they still showed up."
Because he believes everything is replaceable, and he had no idea the kind of community he lived in, until today.
Temple fire tells us when the seasons change from winter to spring, severe weather is more common.
And the best way to make a plan is to go to Ready.gov. It's a website made by FEMA that gives you a plan for you and your family to stay safe during severe weather or a natural disaster.
