SPOKANE, Wash. – Despite Wednesday's less than expected wind storm, there is still storm damage to clean up from the big storm that rocked the Inland Northwest on November 17.
For residents in the Shadle Park neighborhood they are taking things into their own hands as opposed to waiting for the next storm to hit.. After trees fell on homes, leaving them so badly damaged they are still unlivable, some neighbors have decided to cut the trees down themselves.
Nikita Stilwill said she and her mom did not take the warnings of damage lightly.
"I was watching the window every five minutes or so," Stilwill said. "it was scary, really scary."
Although most feel the worst is over, a close call was not worth pushing her luck a second time.
"I feel like they're gonna fall, oh there's four trees down, thank goodness," she said.
Stilwill said now she and her neighbors can sleep easy if another storm were to sweep through.
