The disaster left behind after Saturday's storm is bringing out the best in many in the east.
In Askewville in Bertie County, community members are serving up hot meals at a local church. They're donating clothing, food, supplies and their time, helping their neighbors get through this crisis.
"The good part of being in a small community is everybody's family, everybody knows one another, and when this terrible crisis came, everybody just jumped together," said Pastor Roy Denton.
Pastor Denton's church was the only building in town with electricity, until around 8:00 Monday night, 2 full days after the storm hit, when dominion power got electricity restored to the area.
