It's a tough road ahead for some folks in Monroe County now dealing with the aftermath of a tornado.
The National Weather Service confirmed this weekend a twister did touch down there Friday afternoon.
The E-F2 tornado packed a punch across parts of Monroe County leaving some living there with little to nothing.
With trees down and homes gone, cleanup efforts are well underway.
"You don't have a home. You don't have a home anymore and that hurts," said Ron Parsley, a storm victim in Monroe County.
Folks on Bray School Road are cleaning up--patching the damage Mother Nature left behind.
"You could see the bottom of the tornado, it was just swirling," Parsley said.
Parsley and his family survived the storm by taking shelter inside a hallway of their home when the twister ripped through it.
"The roof came off and it started bouncing. It made a noise I'll never forget--it was like a vacuum," he said.
Now with no roof and no insurance to pay for it, Parsley is just trying to salvage and save whatever he can.
"It's gone. Just that quick, it's gone," he said.
Just down the road, neighbor Reggie McPherson is dealing with his own problems.
His roof is caved in and his drywall is busted. The inside of his home is destroyed.
"It just rolled all the tin back. It's all up the road," McPherson said.
They're two neighbors picking up what's left from the storm.
All the while they're asking for nothing but prayers and counting their blessings that both of their families are safe.
"Property can be replaced, but life, that's something different--that's something precious," Parsley said.
Parsley and McPherson say both their wives work at the local Wal-Mart in Monroe County and the store has helped them some with donations.
Friday's tornado was on the ground for about 16 miles packing winds up to 115-miles-per-hour.
