Deborah Sanders, from Harrisburg, NC, said she and her husband heard the storm coming just in time to wake their daughter.
She and her 14-year-old daughter sought cover, “But my husband didn’t even have time to do that. He just stood in the hallway.”
When the weather had passed, the Sanders family walked outside to assess what had happened, and found that half their home was completely destroyed.
“But we’re OK,” Deborah said. “Us, our daughter and our two dogs are all unhurt, that’s the important thing.”
The Red Cross is providing food, drinks and clean-up supplies to the Sanders family and other residents inNorth Carolinawho have been affected by the storms this morning.
