OMAHA(KPTM)-It's day three in the long process of cleaning up after Friday's tornadoes.
Fortunately there were no deaths but the storm left behind a pretty big mess.
"You're shocked. You're in a shock. I think because you just, it's not what you expect," said Patty Herbold who describes the tornado that tore through the town of Correctionville as one of the scariest things she'd ever seen.
By the time the storm had passed, half of the Herbold's home was in pieces and the house next door, gone. But luckily so was the person who called the place home. Before leaving that night, Marie Benedix made a simple request. "I just thought;' thank God for keeping me safe'. He did exactly what I asked of him, " said Benedix.
Patty and Buddy Herbold missed the full scale destruction. But they did have theirs a decade earlier when they lost their daughter in an accident.
"This is nothing," said Patty Herbold, adding "And it is, it's just stuff. We can live through anything. That was the worst. Losing Lauren." After the loss of their daughter, the Herbolds swore by the saying "one day at a time."And it's that phrase that is getting them through all of this.
So, while the twister took its toll on the town, those who live there stayed safe and sound,
just picking up the pieces of the place they call home, one day at a time.
