Granbury holds auction to help residents recover

Posted: Updated:

Of the 19 tornadoes that hit North Texas, an EF-4 struck Granbury hard. Six people died and several homes were destroyed.

"I've lived here all my life and this is the worst thing I've ever seen," said auction organizer Lonnie Johnson.

FEMA won't help the people of Granbury, so the town is taking matters into their own hands.

An auction held Friday raised money for the Rancho Brazos neighborhood where most people lost everything.

"It's one of the big battle cries through this benefit is, don't forget that there's still a need and we're going to have to keep those folks in mind for several months ahead," said auction organizer Aaron Parker.

Dale Moore came to the auction because he's spent time with people who've been hit the hardest.

"Just everything is gone. Foundations with no house. A landing for a mobile home and there's no home there. Yea it was sad. Those people are going to be fighting an uphill battle for quite a while," said Moore.

Donations of clothing have been overwhelming. However, Granbury won't forget the tornado and what it did to people's lives.

"We still have to remember that there's folks out there that it's going to take months for them to get back to normal," said Parker.
