A vacation spot for many people in Jackson County is not as appealing as it usually is.

After Tuesday night’s storm, several properties in the Skyline Shores subdivision received damage, and most of that damage was done to boathouses.

“Just standing here, looking, I can just look both ways and I can tell you there’s probably 20 boathouses," said Greg Weaver. "I’ve probably worked on 12 or 15 of them. And it looks like probably eight of them are going to have to be worked on—at least.”

Weaver, who has been building boathouses for several years, says he wasn’t expecting so many calls after Tuesday night’s storm.

“I hadn’t thought it was going to turn out nothing like it has, but it’s messed a lot of stuff up here at Skyline Shores," he said.

Weaver says strong winds caused most of the damage to the roofs of the boathouses.

“We work five or six days a week as it is anyway, during good weather," he said. 'We’ll be putting in extra days.”

Weaver says he feels bad for the people who’ve been affected by the storms, and says it’s an inconvenience for many who are ready to get on the water.

“This time of the year, everybody’s wanting to get it done so they can use it this summer," he said.

Weaver tells WAAY 31 it will take a couple of weeks to finish cleaning up the damage left behind by the storm.
