PRAIRIEVILLE - Workers at Louisiana Nursery on LA 42 are literally picking up the pieces.

The wind and rain tore through all three acres of the garden center.

Store Manager Earl Risch says, " It was just a massive blow or wind and rain... Kind of gives you a greater appreciation that things that can happen in mere minutes."

Much of the pottery, plants, and the jungle gym was torn to shreds.

Owners are still figuring out just how much damage has been done. But they say it will probably cost tens of thousands of dollars to bring the nursery back to what it used to be.
