An apartment complex in southeast Houston was ripped apart by dangerous storms Tuesday.

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- An apartment complex in southeast Houston was ripped apart by dangerous storms Tuesday.

The Beamer Place Apartments located at 11150 Beamer Road were completely decimated, forcing residents to evacuate.

Roofing, nails, and insulation from the apartments can be seen covering the parking lot and cars.

Cars that were damaged or stuck in residue forced people to find another source of transportation.

One resident, who moved in on Monday, says she is familiar with this type of loss, but this time, it's more difficult.

"It brought time back to the memories when I lost everything with Hurricane Harvey," she said. "I've been through this, but it's not as emotional as it is now."

She and her granddaughter are left without power.

"It took me this long to get over it, and here I am again," she said.

Houston police are gathering METRO buses to take residents to shelters operated by the Red Cross. Authorities ask residents to bring identification to gain entry back into their apartments.

People will be picked up at 11111 Beamer Rd., and will be taken to the BakerRipley Pasadena Campus located at 720 Fairmont Parkway.
