It's been five months since the big storm in Decatur, and some homes are still a mess.

Kemoine Seay and his family didn't have the equipment to remove fallen trees from their yard. So, when they got the phone call that Team Rubicon would move them, they were happy.

"It made me feel like there's still good people in the community" Seay said. "God still exists in the community".

The Decatur Morgan County Emergency Management Agency gave Team Rubicon a list of over 12 damaged homes that need trees picked up.

Most crew members are trained volunteers, mainly retired veterans and first responders. This saves homeowners lots of money.

"Something like this would be a couple of thousand dollars, especially the larger tree," said volunteer Marie Sanders.

Team Rubicon gets their money from donations from several organizations. They will be in the area working on more homes Sunday morning.
