Storm damage in Haines City

Haines City, FL - Straight line winds tore through a community, leaving several homes damaged.

Wednesday night's storm ripped through parts of the Davenport RV neighborhood, damaging at least 10 homes. Linda McDougald's home was hit the hardest.  The retiree wasn't concerned with the damage as much as the family cat.

"I ran inside and found Daisy. Daisy was fine and there was no water inside, so everything was good," said Linda.

Linda is keeping a positive attitude and staying optimistic as she weathers this storm.

"It's just a thing and it's covered by insurance and they'll come and tell me how they'll fix it we'll be fine," said Linda.

With the help of the close-knit community, Linda explains that picking up the pieces and moving forward won't be as bad as one would think.  

"Once you've been through it, you know you're healthy and you're fine. That's all you can ask for," said Linda.

Insurance agents are set to come out to survey the damaged properties this week.
