One homeowner’s story
When the tornado barreled through Woodward on April 15, 2012, Parks wasn’t concerned about his own home.
A Woodward police officer at the time, Parks worked through the night responding to the disaster in his community.
“I had insurance, so I wasn’t worried at all,” Parks said.
“I just figured I’d call my agent and everything would be fine,” Parks said.
When his insurer said there were no signs of structural damage, he hired his own engineer, who said the home was totaled.
The payment Parks did receive was used for repairs, he said, but he also had to take out a second mortgage.
For now, he’s still living in the home.
“I notice new cracks every day. You can hear the wind at night in the ceiling. It’s never going to be the same,” he said.
Now a firefighter, Parks said he’s looking forward to receiving his settlement so he can buy a new house and get out of debt — but he doesn’t intend to quit working.
“My life has been on hold basically for two years,” he said. “It’s nice knowing I will eventually get something.”
