In March, strong storms ripped through Estill County, leaving many homes damaged. Since then, some neighbors have been struggling to rebuild. But today, they'll be able to get the help they need thanks a storm recovery center. 

The last time LEX 18 was there, debris was scattered everywhere and several homes had their roofs either torn off or damaged. Now, progress has definitely been made but some neighbors are struggling to get everything fixed up.

The storms left several homes destroyed and those buildings are still standing abandoned. Hundreds of others were damaged in some way and neighbors say they've spent countless hours trying to get everything back to normal. But others haven't been able to do much because the repairs are expensive and they're still waiting on insurance.

"They've been good to me, but I didn't get enough money to do everything I needed to get done because things were higher than he estimated them to be," said Phyllis Bowman, a neighbor. 

Today, struggling neighbors will be able to get some help. A storm recovery center will be open at the Estill County senior citizens building from 1:00 until  6:30. People can get help making insurance claims or sign up for help to clean up or rebuild.
