The actual town of Lamont went untouched from the tornado. It was the rain during and afterwards that turned this small community into a soup bowl. Many houses and businesses had windows missing and thousands of dollars worth of damage because of the water flowing through. The state patrol and county sheriffs were going door to door telling people to evacuate their homes. This is one thing that no one expected from such a small crick. Rodney and Brandon Cornwell both stated that the little crick looked as large as the Mississippi River by the time the rain stopped. There are very few basements without water in them. The community as well as the Red Cross are working together to try and clean things up so this community can get back on it's feet. More help is always needed and volunteers would be much appreciated by many homeowners in the area.
