Lydia Greene, who lives in Grand Forks, sent Global News these photos of the shed in her backyard. She says they are praying that the shed doesn’t fall because if it does, they will lose power, and if power goes out, then the pumps stop pumping and water will get into their house. “At the moment, it’s only in the basement,” she says.
Angelina Eubanks returned to her home on Friday to try and save any belongings but not much could be saved.
