SABINE COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

Residents near the Texas-Louisiana border are beginning their own storm recovery efforts on Monday after trees fell on their property from this weekend’s storms.

 The residents said the storm came strong and quick, but they are grateful there wasn't any substantial structural damage.

Sabine County Emergency Coordinator Kerwin Lloyd, who monitors the radar and tracks the movements of the weather, said he reports that the county experienced wind gusts of up to at least 30 mph.

Lloyd said the storm came late Friday night, causing many trees to fall on the roads and even on homes.

The volunteer fire department was quick to act and remove trees, which blocked the roads.

Now, residents in the area are working to restore their county and picking up the pieces from a storm that came and left rather quickly.
