A woman from Oklahoma now living in Bertie County says she is focused on family back home following the tornadoes. Amber Smith moved to Powellsville in January. She says she's been keeping up with family on the phone and online ever since the deadly tornado outbreaks.
"Yesterday was so close to home, I'm like whoa, what if something does happen. I don't know what I'd do. I mean checking the internet, but not being able to be there and be next to them, it's kind of tough but I'm praying for god's protection over them," said Smith.
Smith says thankfully all of her family survived the tornadoes.
