Part of the roof was shredded and some of the walls were separated from the foundations and leaning out.
David Silva says he and his dog were napping at the time.
“Before you know it, big crash bam boom. Shook the house, my dog ran out the back door. I ran to the front and it was dusty, in shambles, and I looked and there was a truck in my house. The driver of the truck came running in, wanted to know if I was okay. I was okay. Then I came outside, and then I saw the magnitude of the destruction and that my house is totaled,” said Silva.READ MORE: Colorado Weather: Monsoon Storms Return Sunday, But Focus Shifts A Bit West
