Virtually every structure in the small crossroads of town has been scarred by the tornado. Reitha Boley's house of 40 years was obliterated.
"I can't believe it. I've never been through anything like this. Now this is a place to come and steal stuff. We weren't around our place yesterday and they came and stole the metal that was lying around."
Authorities report there have been some cases of looting and scrap metal scavenging in the disaster area.
Sharion Clapp picked through the debris of a home that dates back to the turn of the century,the 19th century Monday.
"My living room was 200 years old. It's a one-room log cabin," she said as centuries old timbers poked through what's left of her roof. "This whole room is over 200 years old. Used to be a wood stove here. You can tell by the thickness of the walls that this is logs."
The town water tower and church remain standing. Dozens more buildings don't or won't be standing for long.
"We will build. We will all rebuild," said Clapp. "I'm rebuilding. This is my home."
