BROKEN ARROW, Okla. - Friday marks three months since a tornado ripped through part of Broken Arrow, and damage is still visible along Highway 51.
The EF-2 tornado damages six businesses and 36 homes in the surrounding neighborhoods.
According to the emergency manager in Wagoner County, one of the homes sustaining the worst damage belongs to Belinda Russell.
"We actually saw the debris in the air in the room, heard the noise and watched the blackness and the tornado go right through us right in front of us. That's pretty scary and I haven't stopped thinking about that," Russell said.
Russell's home is now just a slab.
She and her family are in the process of rebuilding now, but she says progress has been slow.
She still comes out to the property on a regular basis to keep up the yard, saying she still takes a lot of pride in the place she considers home.
Russell says she's working on getting permits and other items in place before contractors can start putting up new walls.
Officials say they have about 90 percent of the debris in Broken Arrow cleared from the tornado.
