ODESSA - "It's hard, it's a lot of good memories here, It's hard when something like this happens It's just things that are out of our hands the only thing we have but pray an keep pressing forward."

Lydia Terrazas is picking up the pieces after Thursday's strong winds ripped the roof right off her mobile home.

She says she got the call while she was celebrating her birthday.

"I rushed home and this is what I found, It's heart breaking," Terrazas said.

The four bedroom, two bathroom trailer has been Lydia's home for more than twenty five years. Even though the roof has come down she still calls it home.

"Its heart breaking, I have no insurance and I don't know what to do, I just keep my faith in the good Lord, and ask him to make a way for me, that is all I can do," Terrazas said.

Lydia does not have a steady income, this is where she raised her kids and even grandchildren, she says her faith keeps her going.

"I am a Christian, and I believe that God is going to make a way for me to get it fixed," she said.

For now, Lydia says she will stay in her home with or without a roof, and try to salvage what she can.

"Finish out here, cleaning up, starts in the inside," Terrazas said.
