NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) - A Newport News apartment complex received unexpected damage during severe weather Thursday evening.
Residents of the Woodview apartment complex thought they were hearing thunder until the storm was over and they stepped outside. All the bricks had come off the side of their building, crumbling to the ground.
"Last year when the hurricanes came through, none of this ever happened," recalled Jimmie Shields. "Then all of sudden wind came through first a little after five. My wife said she heard something that sounded like thunder So I was like naw it's just the kids hopping on the box."
Another resident who lives nearby described to WAVY.com what he saw.
"It just ripped the whole half of the apartment off like it was a blanket or something," said Phalonda Warren.
No one was hurt, and the manager of the apartment complex was on site surveying the damage and roping off the area to prevent any injuries. She wouldn't comment on whether or not the residents of the apartments affected by the storm are being accommodated or how long the repairs are likely to take.
