From the naked eye, many Dallas streets look alike right now.
Between piles of debris and pools of standing water, many homes are draped with tarps and windows are covered with plywood.
But the experience for victims can be strikingly different.
Martha Vega, her husband and son live with Vega’s parents in the house she grew up in on Constant Street, near Marsh Lane and Walnut Hill Lane.
The home belonged to Vega’s grandfather.
Friday afternoon, despite being covered in tarps, raindrops fell onto hardwood floors that had just been installed. The ceiling had caved in on most rooms. Belongings they hope to save are stuffed into trash bags and plastic bins by the front door.
