MISSION — David Reyna, a resident of Mobile Gardens Community, was watching a Mavericks basketball game with his family when last week’s storm made a grand entrance into his neighborhood and cut off his satellite signal.
“I told the boys that it was time to go to bed,” he said, recalling the March 29 storm. “That’s when I saw that a piece of aluminum siding had come right through my bedroom wall and broke the headboard on my bed.”
Strong gusts of winds left trees and other debris in residents’ yards throughout the Mission-McAllen area, leaving many without power for several hours. The rainfall that accompanied the winds and hail also left several motorists stranded due to flooding in the area.
