Volunteers Rebuild Homes In Bertie County

Nearly four months after deadly tornadoes fanned out across North Carolina, an army of volunteers descended upon the hard hit area of Bertie County.

Groups from across the state and as far away as New Jersey came together in Bertie County Tuesday to help rebuild homes destroyed in the April 16th tornadoes.

The groups affiliated with Samaritan's Purse started building two new homes from the ground up. All of the supplies have been donated by Samaritan's Purse or other organizations.

Lucy Clemons, who lost her home in the tornado says, "I've got God on my side. He sits high but he looks low. I know He is on my side because I have a lot of good folks on my side."

Each home will be built with a safe room. The safe room will have 8 inch walls reinforced with steel and concrete.
