EVANSVILLE, Ind. (21Alive) – Residents in Evansville are cleaning up after strong storms rolled through the area Friday.

There were reports of some major damage at a mobile home park where several mobile homes were torn apart as trees came crashing down.

Residents in another neighborhood worked together to help clean up the damage.

The strong winds also ripped the roofs off several barns at an area farm.

Power crews also spent Friday evening trying to restore power to nearly 52,000 customers who were without electricity.

Officials say it could take the entire weekend to get everyone's power back up.
