April 27th, 2011 is a day that everyone who lives in the Harvest community can’t forget.

“It still feels different even though it’s been five years,” said resident Billy Sheridan.

If you’re driving past the Anderson Hills community, you might notice that some of the wall is missing. as well as some of the homes.

“Not all of them were completely swept away but enough damage where it was made unlivable,” said Sheridan.

James Redmon has lived in this community for over 20 years.

“This was the second time. The first time was a direct hit. We got taken out and that was again in 1995,” said Redmon.

The lesson learned from 1995 kept his family safe in 2011.

Residents went days without power bringing the community closer together

“A lot of the residents got together. We were trying to help each other,” said Redmon.

For the Anderson Hills neighborhood, it’s a day that no one will forget. 

“It was a pretty intense experience,” said Remon.
