BATON ROUGE, La. (LOCAL 33/FOX 44) – The clean up started in the Westminister neighborhood after early morning storm Wednesday.

“Now at that point in time the street lights were on and they surged on and they surged off so I said okay, let’s go see what that is. Got out and the tree fell right in front of my truck,” said Anthony Mancuso.

He got lucky, but that tree fell on a fence and landed on top of his neighbor’s house. Another tree fell on top of a car. Another tree smashed the roof of a house. Debris could be found across yards and in the street..

“I have a great group of kids and they’re excited to be out here and happy to help and just love the lord and want to come out and help the community how they can,” said Jeff Hulett.

A youth group from Jefferson Baptist Church came to help out. They picked up tree limbs and other debris in yards. They plan to help as many neighbors as they can.

Hulett said, “I have a great group of kids and they’re excited to be out here and happy to help and just love the lord and want to come out and help the community how they can.”
