Wharton Family Loses Home But Still Has Hope

Leona Green says her Tuesday started like any other, before a storm came through Wharton and changed her life. When the storm took a turn for the worst Leona went from her living room to her bedroom for shelter. Leona lived here with her Daughter and Granddaughter. A tree crushed her home landing right in her kitchen. Leona’s Daughter Myesha Byars showed up just in time to pull her mother to safety through her bedroom window.

“I was coming down the road and I saw all the other trees down so I was kind of scared when I pulled up the power lines were down and the neighbors were telling me not to go in there, but I didn’t worry about what they were telling me because my mama was in the house,” Byars said.
