A California city is under siege, ― from tumbleweeds. “It’s a nasty nightmare” “We’re not exactly sure how many homes are affected, but we’re estimating about 100 to 150 homes in that area,” city spokeswoman Sue Jones told the http://Victorville Daily Press. Victorville, located about 60 miles northeast of Los Angeles, has been invaded by the wind-blown objects. Many had to call 911 for help. Footage shows the weeds tumbling down the streets and stacking up against homes, forming two-story mounds that blocked some residents inside.
“We’re not exactly sure how many homes are affected. “Normally you get a few flying down the street or whatnot, but never this many that will stack up even this much, and this is mild compared to what it was actually in the backyard and in the front of the house,” resident Tanya Speight told KABC. “It seems like every time we get the tumbleweeds cleared up, the wind blows and blows them right back again,” Real estate broker Bryan Bagwell told the Washington Post. “It’s a nasty nightmare.” The city’s code enforcement department has dispatched trucks to haul away the tumbleweeds according to the http://Victorville Daily Press.
