SOUTH FULTON COUNTY, Ga. – Residents are picking up the pieces in south Fulton County where a EF-2 tornado hit Monday evening.
Many homes on Jumpers Trail, in Fairburn’s Chestnut Ridge subdivision, are left open to the elements and to criminals.
Homeowners are working to get their houses boarded up, so no one can steal anything inside.
Home surveillance video captured the moments just before Thomas Correa says a tornado left his home exposed to the elements among other threats.
“I saw the blue light in the middle of the storm,” Correa said.
Correa told Channel 2’s Carl Willis that his neighborhood along Jumpers Trail has been in the dark since the tornado and is eerily quiet once the workers leave.
That has Correa and his neighbors concerned about security.
“I’ve got a lot of money invested — not only money but special things that we bought because we love it. It’s been with us for 10 years so definitely, we’re concerned,” Correa said about his home.
“I understand that because there are a lot of people in the neighborhood walking around that are not familiar faces,” neighbor Marjorie Davis said.
Fulton County Commission Chair Robb Pitts said Wednesday that security will be present in the neighborhood.
Willis said he saw private security and Fulton County police patrolling throughout the day.
