JEFFERSON COUNTY, IN. (WDRB)--It could be months or even years before things are back to normal in Jefferson County, Indiana. Last week, a tornado killed four people and destroyed at least a dozen homes.
Right now they're still in the process of cleaning up. There is also a massive effort to help those who lost loved ones and homes to the tornado.
"A gentleman at our church called at 9:30 at my home and said can we just feed people? And that's where this all began," says Terry Eversole, Pastor of Chelsea Church of God.
That one phone call led to all of loads of food, water and clothing at the Chelsea Church of God in Jefferson County, Indiana. "Probably enough to feed hundreds," says Eversole.
Pastor Eversole says the goal is to help all of the families affected by the tornado. He says the support from the community has been simply amazing. "National guard has brought in two truck loads and then people have just been showing up by the I would say hundreds of people."
The tornado left so much destruction behind, but the biggest loss involves the four people who did not survive the storm, and that's where most of the focus is this week.
"This coming week is going to be equally as tough on our community as we pay our respects and lay to rest our family and friends," says John Wallace, Jefferson County, Indiana Sheriff.
And some people have already started paying their respects, with little memorials at a home where two people and their four year old great grandchild died on Friday.
"We've seen the worst that mother nature has to deal to us and we've seen the best of humanity all at the same time," says Sheriff Wallace.
And that might explain the American flag now flying high at the site of another home that was uprooted and destroyed by the tornado. Meanwhile, for now...people are still cleaning up before the rebuilding can start. And if and when they need food or a break, the red cross and folks at the Chelsea Church of God plan to be there.
"Some people came in needing food, some people need supplies, gloves, tarps things like that and then Saturday night someone just said can we have a hot meal," says Pastor Eversole.
