BAYOU PIGEON - Strong storms damaged a trailer park in Iberville Parish Friday evening, according to authorities.

She continued, the weather quickly turned violent and a trailer went flying.
"The trailer came off the ground, it moved three feet," she said.
Nearby, a 2x6 piece of wood pierced the side of a home. Roofs had been torn off and windows busted at other homes in the community.
