IBERIA PARISH, La. — It's the furious sound of Mother Nature.
A vigorous breeze shook Walter Jackson's home as Tropical Storm Barry moved through Iberia Parish, Louisiana over the weekend.
"It was blowing limbs and trees around," Jackson said.
His roof almost blew away.
Winds of about 65 miles per hour took a toll on Iberia County.
Gusts left trees, limbs and debris spread around many homes.
"When he went to sleep, I just sat down and looked out the window, you couldn't do nothing at all," Christopher Simpson, Jackson's helper said.
He watched the storm roll through, and says when this happens, the people of Louisiana are used to seeing debris, limbs and tin fly and end up in yards.
"Sit down in a storm in Louisiana and you will see, it's nothing nice," Simpson said.
He said the sight is nothing new.
"Oh lord, Katrina and Andrew," Jackson said.
When asked how those two storms compared to Barry, he said, "it was alright so far, it wasn't bad, it wasn't bad."
This community will now have to clean up to recover from the intense mess Barry left in its wake.
"We don't get any help, we have to do it ourselves, take it and put it on the side of the road, then the city comes to clean it up," Jackson said.
But many know, the storm could've had a very different outcome.
"It could have been worse, but thank God it wasn't," Simpson said.
