Local News

EDINBURG, Texas (KVEO) – A massive tree went crashing down on a fence, landing on a side of a home.

“This tree was a pretty big tree but it was another day at the office it was a little bit easier since the wind knocked it over all we had to do was come in a cut it to pieces,” says Joshua Alvarado.

Multiple neighbors were said to hear the tree crashing. “A bunch of cracking and you would just hear the trees land and you would look out the window and see trees down,” said Kobie Seanz.

Since Hurricane Hanna, owner of South Texas Tree Removal Services has seen an uptick in his business.

“My phone has been going crazy all week. My Facebook page has been getting messaging like crazy and it’s a lot of work right now rolling in and we’re trying to keep ourselves busy as possible,” says Alvarado.

Before and after pictures taken by Alvarado showed how much damage the Tropical Storm did to homeowners’ properties in the Rio Grande Valley area.  

Alvarado says, “today we were serving in the mission area and just on our way to the homeowner’s house in Mission we saw about twenty five trees that were damaged and just all over the place we saw nothing but brushes and broken trees everywhere.”

Alvarado did say he hopes to continue to service the community even going as far to have a Hurricane Relief Package and for right now he is trying to keep busy.
