ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) - As the storm wreaked havoc across the metro area , it ruined a lot of property and plans for people at the Isleta Amphitheater.
On Saturday, many of those people shelled out money for damages they got at a concert they didn't even get to see. Concert goers said they didn't see the storm coming until it was too late.
It wasn't a typical rainstorm. The storm packed winds around 90 miles-an-hour as it passed over the Isleta Amphitheater Friday night.
"It started coming up over our ankles, so we knew we had to get out of there," said Wes Devilbiss, who drove from Farmington for the concert. "We had to make it all the way to our car," he added, which was tough.
Devilbiss was one of thousands who planned to see country star Luke Bryan at the sold-out show. But, plans were wrecked for his fans, and the night didn't fare well for attendees' cars either.
The storm was so intense, it shattered multiple car windows. "We don't always immediately coincide a storm like that with a business, but yeah, we were actually shocked with how busy we got today," said Quinn Woodard, TechnaGlass Director of Operations.
Vehicles piled in for repairs at the TechnaGlass on San Mateo. Workers cleaned out, and replaced broken windows.
Devilbiss said he's thankful that he and his wife were okay. When the winds picked up, he said people took cover anywhere they could, holding down tents and hiding next to buildings.
When Devilbiss made a run for his car, he said, "we couldn't run because it was coming down so hard we had to keep our [raincoats] over our head, and stay down."
On Saturday, Sky News 13 flew over the Isleta Amphitheater as workers cleaned up the mess. Abandoned lawn chairs were still strewn throughout the lawn.
Meanwhile, business more than doubled by mid-day at TechnaGlass.
"It was shocking that there was that much damage from the storm," said Woodard.
There is some good news. According to the Isleta Amphitheater's Facebook page, the Luke Bryan concert has been rescheduled for Sept. 22. Tickets already purchased will be honored.
It is unclear just how much the damage cost concert goers, but at the San Mateo TechnaGlass location alone, they made about $5,000 worth of window repairs Saturday.
