TUCSON-Heavy wind knocked down several power poles in a neighborhood near Park and Fair.
Friday's monsoon damage also affected 12 TUSD schools including Van Buskirk Elementary.
The storm caused a lot of damage.
TEP was there again Saturday replacing the downed power poles that left customers living in this area without power for several hours.
When the power poles split, people living in the neighborhood said they feared the worst.
"We thought the wires here are the closest to the house, and we thought they were going to fall on top of the house or something," said Manuela Moreno.
The storm ripped through the neighborhood not only knocking down the poles but a nearby school's roof as well.
"It's really scary, and they're going to start school Thursday, so I don't know if they're really going to start it or not. Is it going to be ready?" said Moreno.
TUSD tells News 4 Tucson they are assessing the damage and will know the answer once they determine the extent of the storm's damage.
They will be back at Van Buskirk Elementary on Sunday.
