Dozens of power lines snapped in half and a roof was ripped off a home in Florence.
A downburst hit the home straight on, picking up the roof and smashing it to the ground.
"I've never seen anything like this," said Martha Flores, who is a family friend to the people who's home was damaged.
The family was out of town in Tucson when the rain moved through.
It left the inside of the home soaked, windows broken, the porch awnings in pieces and the roof remains scattered across the ground.
"It's really sad because they're really good people," said Flores. "It's terrible to see something like this happen to them."
The monsoon season is just beginning and one family is already victims to it's force.
"You can ever underestimate monsoon season," said Flores.
