AMARILLO, TX - NewsChannel 10 spoke with several families Monday. 

Some were told by authorities their homes were gone, others were told their homes were still standing.

But they all tell NewsChannel 10, waiting to see what is left of their neighborhood was emotionally challenging.

"Just the not knowing. It's nerve wrecking. You just don't know, its a waiting game at this point." said Howard Heath, whose house was not burned.

While out there Monday,  You could really feel a sense of community. 

Neighbors were talking, consoling each other to stay upbeat.

Some families who had lost everything and were still searching for their family pets were even offering our crews water as we were out talking to them.

The families we met, including those who lost homes they had been in for twenty plus years, say, they are thankful no one was hurt.

They are also thankful for all the area emergency responders who kept their families safe.
