Staff Reporter A storm with heavy rain and lightning on Friday afternoon blew the roof of this mobile home in Cornville and dropped four large pine trees on another mobile home in the Lower Oak Creek Estates, but luckily not one was injured. Luz Moreno said she was not home about 5 p.m. when the storm hit the area of Cornville which is at the very end of South Loy Road. But her dog Pinki was inside, she said. The door was opened by the storm when the roof came off and Pinki ran off. The dog was found safe after the storm wandering nearby by a YCSO sheriff. Just down the street, neighbor Eduardo Gonalalez was on his deck watching the storm when four large pine trees fell on his mobile home with his wife asleep inside. The trees covered the back of the structure and Gonalalez said he had to get to his wife through the branches. But she was not injured, he said. The storm flooded local roads in and around Page Spring Road and large lightning bursts were striking in the Cornville area at the time of the storm. Other neighbors in the Oak Creek Estates were in their yards Saturday morning picking up branches, chainsawing and cleaning leaves.VVN/Vyto Starinskas
