Amanda Hughes, left, and Taylor Mahala team up to carry off one of the limbs from a large tree that fell on Praise Assembly. Mahalal, still wearing a dress, said she had just gotten back into town and heard other church members were volunteering to clear two trees that had fallen, so, without changing clothes, she came to the church to lend a hand. Praise Assembly on Wednesday had free hot lunches for anybody who came by and bags of free groceries to the first 100 guests. Photo by Bob Sofaly.
