A Texas-sized storm hit Hockley County last night and the city of Levelland took the brunt of it. Trees are down, cars and trucks are flooded and people's property took a beating! The Levelland Fire Department has been sending out updates since last night. They were also looking for volunteers to assist with the clean up.

The folks at Boots & Badges of the South Plains jumped at the chance to help out, just like they do every time something like this happens in our community! I spoke with one of the founders of the organization, Aaron Cristan, and he told me he was there earlier today. He posted this on Facebook as well...

He shared some pictures of the aftermath and a few of the volunteers too...

I saw that they also sent out an update for residents and volunteers, saying the following:

City Operational Facilities, including City Hall, Landfill, Recycling Center, and Swimming Pool are Closed. 
Those who need shelter can go to the Student Center at South Plains College.
You can take construction debris and trees/limbs to 4 locations in town: Rail Park- west of 2119 Progressive Place, the vacant lot at Sherman & Maple, the vacant lot behind Walmart (behind Jackson & Sherman) and at City Park (intersection of Houston & Ave. S)
Contractors: Because the City Hall permitting office is closed at this time, ALL Contractors need to check in with Margo Garcia at the Levelland Fire Department, 603 5th St.
All heavy equipment staging is taking place at the Mallet Event Center (for coordinating debris removal)
United Supermarket is open, but are not selling cold items or deli items. They are taking CARD ONLY.
Lucero’s Food Truck will be at 603 5th at the Levelland Fire Department later this evening to donate dinner plates to help those affected by the storm.

Nirvana Burger, DADDY BUG’S Food Truck, Dough-Nut-Patrol , and K&B BBQ will all be set up at Prosperity Bank tonight on College Avenue selling food and dessert from 5-9 pm
