Several residents found themselves trapped after the storm.
"My daughter is trapped, her and two others. There are power lines all over,” stated one 911 caller. "My parents’ home is destroyed, my parents can't get out,” another person reported to emergency workers.
Two people died in the destruction and a half dozen were injured.
According to the Lincoln County Emergency Management Agency, victims of Monday’s tornado are in need of several items including cleaning supplies, rakes, shovels, trash bags, flashlights and batteries. They could also use mops, brooms and buckets.
These items can be delivered to the Woody Anderson Ford Dealership on 2226 Huntsville Highway in Fayetteville. Monetary donations can be made at all branches of the Bank of Lincoln County.
