CALHOUN CITY, Miss. (WTVA) - Wednesday marked one month since an EF-1 tornado swept through Calhoun City.
And the cleanup continues.
"It was a bad time, but it could have been a lot worse; we were just blessed that nobody was hurt," Tenia Bingham said.
She was coming home from Memphis, Tennessee, when the storm passed over. She arrived and saw most of her neighborhood in pieces.
Robbie Goodwin agreed: it could have been worse.
"Everybody ought to be thankful today that we are still here because it was bad, it was bad," he said.
Fortunately, the storm left behind no causalities.
Members of the community and churches have provided food to storm victims and those cleaning up debris.
Some victims were without power for almost a week.
But the community is thankful for everyone who provided aid following the storm.
"The utility workers and first responders — they come in like champs; they did a real good job," Goodwin added.
