OMAHA(KPTM)- Three weeks ago, an EF-4 tornado ripped through Wayne, Nebraska, flattening buildings and leaving some homeless, including the Grimaldo family. Today the Grimaldos received a truck full of items to furnish their donated home.
Ruth Grimaldo barely escaped the massive tornado that rolled through northeastern Nebraska earlier this month, her home did not. "The house was destroyed. All of the windows were shattered," said Grimaldo who was home when the tornado hit.
"At first I couldn't believe it was all gone. But when I didn't have a home, I realized I was homeless and it was a very awful feeling," said Valdemar Grimaldo.
When Edwina Justus saw the news about the tornado on Fox 42, she decided to help out, by donating an entire house full of furniture. Today, Kurt Lamb volunteered his truck and his time to help move Justus' furniture 150 miles to the Grimaldos' new home, donated to them by the Red Cross.
"I'm very happy and excited that I could start all over and not be inside an empty house," said Valdemar Grimaldo. Justus said she was just happy to help out. "Material things are things you can always get more of, so I've always been able to get whatever I needed, so I'm sure God will bless me with some more. He's already blessed me with some more friends," said Justus.
