BRIGHTON, Mo. – Thursday night's storms left some people cleaning up Friday.

In Brighton, which is in Polk County, the roof blew off of this mobile home.

The people that live in the home were not there at the time, but they hurried back after a family member alerted them.

"Her cousin called me about the time I got to Bolivar,” said Philip Hodges, the homeowner. “And said that the roof was gone. So I came home, I called my dad, and he called a friend and I called a friend and we was all out here until after dark last night trying to tarp it up."

They plan to spend a weekend putting a tin roof on the mobile home.
