said Saturday morning.

"It's just total deva's station of homes. There's just nothing left," Matheny added. "There are some homes
that weren't even touched, but there's camper trailers turned upside down, and there's property and valuables strewn everywhere."
Residents had almost no warning in time, said Jessie Rech, assistant chief of the Campbell County Fire Department. "It
was one of those freak deals," he said.
"The warning was going off just as it lit from what I understand," said Sheriff Bill Pownall.
Dianna Riley, hospital nursing supervisor, confirmed that what she had witnessed there.
"I talked to one couple and they can remember flying through the air and screaming to each other," said Dianna
Riley, nursing supervisor at Campbell County Memorial Hospital in Gillette. "And then they woke up."
Only four families used a Red Cross shelter; the rest were taken in by friends and others, said Michaelle Von Flatern
of the Red Cross.
