As clean up was underway Kristina Ussery realized she’s lucky to be alive.
The mother was home with her kids during the storm.
"All the sudden you heard this horrific noise that sounded like a train and a semi all together,” said Ussery.
She says she will never forget what happened next.
"I had two kids in the hallway, and then my oldest was right in front of me as the ceiling was coming down I immediately went on him,” said Ussery.
Ussery quickly helped get her children into the family’s storm shelter.
Later she realized what had actually happened in those brief frightening moments.
“The tree came in through the house. The ceiling itself fell on me,” said Ussery.
As of Sunday morning Ussery had yet to go see a doctor. She says she is in pain but wanted to stay with her kids who were shook up from the storm.
While she’s unsure of her injuries right now, she says she is grateful her house and her back to the brunt of the storm damage.
"We're alive... lives can't be replaced. All this... it may take time but it can be replaced,” said Ussery.
The people that live in her neighborhood echo the sentiment.
"Everyone's fine thank God,” said Clark.
Several homes in the Stony Point neighborhood are not suitable to stay in right now. The Red Cross went door to door on Sunday assessing damage. They plan to open cooling shelters nearby until power is restored to the area.
