CALHOUN CITY, Miss. (WTVA) - As some people in Calhoun County deal with the impact of Tuesday’s storm, other residents are still working through the aftermath of Sunday night’s severe weather.
We heard from Amber Morgan on Monday, she’d said she wasn’t sure if her home could be repaired, but now she is a little more hopeful.
“I think it can be repaired. I think the redwood shingles on the roof that was under the tin is what probably saved it," said Morgan.
Morgan placed several containers around her Calhoun City home. Sunday’s storm tore through her roof, so now water is leaking throughout her property.
“My house is leaking...I’ve got trashcans, buckets, ice-cream makers – everything catching water," said Morgan.
Morgan said emergency crews told her that they can’t restore her power until a large pile of trees is removed from her yard. Until then, she said she’s making the best of her current situation.
“I have kerosene lanterns, at night I’ve got light," said Morgan. "Not real convenient, not real bright, but at least I have it.”
Morgan said several family members offered to let her stay with them, but she said it’s hard to pack up and leave the place she calls home.
